TRAFFIC SHIFT ONTO NEW DETOUR ROUTE: Northbound and southbound K-99 traffic over Snipe Creek bridge will be shifted onto a new detour route utilizing U.S. 77 instead of the original detour route on K-87, beginning sometime on Friday, August 8 in Marshall County. Due to the increased heavy truck and vehicle traffic on K-87, the roadway pavement is beginning to show signs of serious deterioration. Crews will install new traffic control on Thursday and Friday, August 7-8 and once in place traffic will be shifted onto the new detour route.
The new marked detour route is as follows: Northbound K-99 traffic will detour viand K-9 to northbound U.S. 77 to westbound U.S. 36 back to K-99. Southbound K-99 traffic will detour via westbound U.S. 36 to southbound U.S. 77 to eastbound K-9 back to K-99. See marked detour route map below.
The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” when approaching and driving through the project work zone.
The overall bridge replacement project is scheduled to be completed in late November 2014, weather permitting. (KDOT Project #99-58 KA-2069-01)
