Rain delays repaving work at Tee Pee Junction

August 17, 2009


Repaving work at an intersection at the northern edge of town won’t start until Wednesday morning.

That’s the new schedule for a pavement-sealing project at the intersection of U.S. Highway 24/40 and U.S. 24/59, commonly known as Tee Pee Junction.

Work had been expected to occur this morning, but rains washed out those plans, the Kansas Department of Transportation said.

If work can start Wednesday morning, the department said, crews should be finished with the intersection sometime Aug. 25.

The intersection will be expected to remain open throughout the work, although drivers should expect lane closures and minor delays, KDOT said.

Hmmm, could they hang a right on East 1500 Rd (aka North 7th Street aka Douglas County Hwy 9) and repave from Hwy 24 to Lake Street?

Or just turn it back to gravel.

Or just finish destroying the road and plant some nice trees and grass down that strip instead.

Or maybe just plant some trees in the potholes so we can see them.

I don't think they're ever going to redo that stretch of road, sandrat. It sucks!

The wrapping made the headline look strange...I just read Pee Junction....

I have nothing useful to say here.
