Following are some of the City of Manhattan projects that may have a significant impact on traffic in Manhattan in the coming weeks and months. But we're not the only ones making improvements across the community. Check out Kansas State University's construction update for projects around campus that may affect pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
Utility work on Denison Avenue
Starting Oct. 1, contract workers for AT&T will be installing fiber optic equipment along Denison Avenue, which will require the workers to be in the northbound lane. Traffic control will be in place, and two-way traffic will be maintained, but expect lane restrictions.
Linear Trail closure
Linear Trail will be closed between State Street and Anderson Avenue for construction at the city's water and sewer maintenance facility at 3131 Anderson Ave. The closure is expected to last until mid-December.
11th & Fremont intersection improvements
Beginning Sept. 21 and continuing through late January, construction will take place at 11th and Fremont near the northeast corner of City Park. Traffic control is in place, and detours for pedestrians and bicyclists should be followed.
Kimball Avenue lane shift
Beginning Aug. 10, eastbound traffic on Kimball Avenue east of Denison Avenue will be shifted to the south to allow a westbound truck turn lane for trucks entering the NBAF construction site.
Parks and Recreation Office Relocation (City Hall)
Construction on the north side of City Hall, 1101 Poyntz Ave., for the Parks and Recreation office relocation began in January. The north entrance to City Hall will remain open during construction; however, we encourage those using ADA-accessible parking spots to park in the rear of the building and use the ADA-accessible southeast entrance. The sidewalk between the fire station and the City Hall front entrance will be blocked during construction.
