As KDOT's contractor continues work on the 6th Avenue/US 50 Highway and Prairie Street Intersection, the following is what travelers can expect over the next several weeks:
- Concrete pavement, storm sewer, waterline, sidewalk, and ADA ramp improvements on the north half of the intersection will be completed in the next one (1) to two (2) weeks, weather permitting.
- Concrete pavement, storm sewer, sidewalk, and ADA ramps on the south half of the intersection will be completed in the next two (2) to four (4) weeks, weather permitting.
- New traffic signal poles have an expected delivery of June/July 2023 and will be constructed once received on site. They have been delayed due to supply chain issues.
- Site restoration, seeding, and pavement markings will follow.
Should the contractor complete the utility and pavement improvements prior to the arrival of the traffic signal poles, the construction traffic control will remain in place with minimal work remaining until delivery of the traffic signal poles.
