Traffic is to be detoured on Highway K-99 north of Frankfort beginning this week for a bridge replacement project over the Clear Creek drainage area, five miles north of Frankfort. Crews will begin setting traffic control, which will include a marked detour via Highway K-9 to Highway K-87 to U.S. Highway 36. That will be operational directing traffic for the duration of the project, expected in November. Ebert Construction of Wamego is in charge of the $1.1 million bridge replacement of the existing 36’ wide structure.
Repair work continues on the Highway K-15 bridge over Mill Creek south of Washington. Traffic is limited to one lane as the bridge deck is being patched. That work is to be completed by July 5th.
Road construction also includes a six and one half mile chip seal project on Nebraska Highway 112 south of Beatrice, with traffic delayed with pilot car and flaggers this week.
