A mile-long stretch of East 1750 Road will be closed around the clock starting Jan. 13 and is expected to remain closed until spring 2015, the Kansas Department of Transportation announced.
The portion between North 1250 Road and North 1360 Road will be closed in both directions for bridge embankment work that is related to the extension of the South Lawrence Trafficway.
No marked detours will be provided. Drivers should expect minor delays and must use alternate routes during the roadway closures. See attached maps for roadway closure locations.
KDOT has also updated the planned schedules for work on two other roads that are currently closed for work related to the SLT project:
• 35th Street, from Iowa Street to the Baker Wetlands Visitor Center, is closed in both directions for box culvert construction work and is expected to reopen in mid-May 2014.
• 31st Street, from East 1700 Road to East 1750 Road, is closed in both directions for box culvert construction work and is expected to reopen in spring 2015.
