The Kansas Department of Transportation says a replacement project is set to begin on the K-99 bridge over Snipe Creek located a little over four miles north of the north K-9 junction in Marshall County.
The project work includes replacement of the existing 36-foot wide structure with a 36-foot reinforced concrete haunched slab structure with two 12-foot driving lanes and 6-foot shoulders. KDOT says work will take place during daylight hours, Monday through Friday, with some occasional Saturday work.
Sometime on Monday, KDOT says both northbound and southbound K-99 over the Clear Creek drainage area bridge will be closed all through traffic for the duration of the project.
A marked detour route will be provided. Northbound K-99 traffic will detour via eastbound K-9 to northbound K-87 to westbound U.S. 36 back to K-99. Southbound K-99 traffic will detour via eastbound U.S. 36 to southbound K-87 to westbound K-9 back to K-99.
Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via signage, cones and barriers. Drivers should allow extra time for their daily commutes and must use alternate routes throughout the project duration.
Ebert Construction Company, Inc. of Wamego is the primary contractor on this project with a total contract cost of $1.113 million. The schedules completion date is late November of 2014.
