Thursday, May 18, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) plans to start work on a project to replace the Paint Creek bridge on K-3. The bridge is 1½ miles north of the Crawford-Bourbon county line. K-3 will be closed to traffic between K-146 and K-39, with a signed detour on K-47, K-7 and K-39 (see map).
KDOT awarded the construction contract of $1.8 million to Bridges Inc., of Newton. Weather permitting, the new bridge should be open by the end of November.
