Kimball Ave (Seth Childs to Kenmar) complete 8/30

The City of Manhattan and Ebert Construction are pleased to announce that Kimball Avenue between Seth Child Road and Kenmar Avenue will open to full traffic operations on Friday, August 30th, late afternoon.  Pavement markings will be installed the day prior on Thursday, August 29th, which will require going down to two-lane traffic in the outside lanes for the better part of the day.  If pavement marking efforts are hampered by rain or other unexpected events, the road will still be opened for 4-lane traffic utilizing other temporary channelizing methods in anticipation of the first K-State home football game.  

Full usage of the new crosswalks at Browning Avenue will not be available until the road is fully open.  Children walking to and from Marlatt Elementary and Susan B. Anthony Middle School that would normally use the Browning Avenue crosswalks are advised to continue to use the temporary crosswalk at Kenmar Avenue until Tuesday, September 3rd after Labor Day.  

This project included new stormsewer, new pedestrian crossing improvements at Browning Avenue, a turn lane for Seaton Avenue, as well as full-depth pavement replacement. The $1.5 million project will greatly increase safety for the highly traveled Kimball Corridor.

Thank you for your patience during the long construction season this year. We hope you enjoy the new features and roadway improvements. Find more information about active road projects on the Active Projects Map.
