Prairie Street and 6th Avenue Intersection Project

Key things to know about the upcoming KDOT Geometric Intersection Project at 6th Avenue (US-50 Hwy) and Prairie Street beginning the week of March 13, 2023:
🚧 Temporary traffic signals and new permanent traffic signals will be constructed.
🚧 Prairie Street and 6th Avenue (US-50 Hwy) will see closures to one (1) lane each direction at times during the construction.
🚧 6th Avenue (US-50 Hwy) will see utility work (waterline and storm sewer) along the north curb line at the Prairie Street intersection at times during the construction.
🚧 The median island along Prairie Street south of 6th Avenue (US-50 Hwy) will be partially torn out and reconstructed.
🚧 Curb and gutter around the radius returns of the intersection and some driveways near the intersection will be reconstructed along with the adjacent pavement, ADA ramps and sidewalk.
If possible, it is recommended to find an alternate route around this intersection during construction. The project is expected to last through Summer 2023.

In advance of the intersection project, there has been a change to the traffic signal at 6th Avenue and Prairie Street.

Vehicles travelling north will have a turn arrow and thru green lights while south bound lanes have the red light. Only one direction will have green lights at one time. This does not affect the west and east bound traffic.
