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.
City Park parking improvements
Starting Feb. 15, construction will affect parking in the north parking areas of City Park. The North Park Parking Project is expected to be complete by June. During construction, North Park Road will be limited to one-way traffic. The road may need to be closed for brief periods as the contractor completes tasks. The west side of the road will be closed first. When that side is complete, work will start on the east side. Parking will be limited in this area and visitors are encouraged to use alternative parking south of Miller Field and in the Baker Field lot. Visitors are urged to use caution and obey all posted signs.
Work is continuing on the City Pool Parking Lot, with the contractor expected to complete the sidewalks, multi-use path and lighting improvements in the next few weeks. Landscaping and seeding will follow as weather allows.
Seth Child and Farm Bureau Road traffic signal
The traffic signal, controller and cabinet at Seth Child Road and Farm Bureau Road have malfunctioned and have lost the ability to detect vehicles. The signal is operational but cannot detect cars. Repair parts are on order and will be installed as soon as possible. Delays can be expected until repairs are made.
