Update on 69 Hwy. Expansion

Kansas Department of Transportation work on 69 Hwy. as seen from Eagle Road earlier in the expansion project.

The U.S.Hwy 69 expansion in Bourbon County is nearing completion.

“The four lanes should be completed within the next two to three weeks,”  Priscilla Peterson, Public Affairs Manager, Southeast Kansas Department of Transportation said. “Although both north- and southbound traffic will be reduced to one lane to allow the contractor to finish work on the median and shoulders.”

It is projected that the four-lane section will be open to unrestricted traffic by mid to late June, she said.

“A ribbon cutting is in the works for late June, although we don’t yet have an exact date,” Peterson said.
