Active Projects

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.

Asphalt street maintenance program
As part of the asphalt street maintenance program scheduled for 2015, the following areas will see construction beginning Aug. 3: Dickens Avenue from College Avenue to Seth Child Road; Westwood Road from Sunset Avenue to Fort Riley Boulevard; 14th Street from Fremont Street to Poyntz Avenue; and Sunset Avenue from south of Anderson Avenue to north of the Manhattan High School campus.

Fort Riley Boulevard street repairs
Street repairs will begin on Fort Riley Boulevard at 8 a.m. July 27 and continue for two to three days. Westbound traffic will be reduced to one lane between South Delaware and Poliska Lane.

14th Street stormwater improvements
Beginning July 21, 14th Street from Leavenworth to Fremont will be closed for stormwater improvements.

Denison corridor signal improvements
Beginning July 6, work will begin in the area of College Heights Road and Denison Avenue for a signal improvement project. Thru traffic will be allowed throughout the project, but pedestrians should find alternatives. Paving improvements should be done by mid-August, and new signals should be operating by early September.

West Campus sanitary sewer improvements
Work begins June 24 along Anderson Avenue between Denison Avenue and 17th Street to improve sanitary sewer capacity in the area. At times during the project, westbound Anderson Avenue will be reduced to one lane. Work should be complete by late July.

North Manhattan Avenue
North Manhattan Avenue will be closed from May 18 to Aug. 18 for construction. Thru traffic should use Tuttle Creek Boulevard or Denison Avenue. Blue Hills Road will be closed starting June 16. Access to the Blue Hills neighborhood will only be from the south on Keen Drive.

Tuttle Creek Boulevard (KDOT mill and overlay project)
A resurfacing project is underway on U.S. Highway 24 (Tuttle Creek Boulevard) from the K-177 junction north to the K-13 junction. Northbound and southbound traffic will be reduced to one open lane in each direction in several mile increments. Expect delays and use alternate routes if possible.

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.
