Phase 1 of the K-18 KDOT Wildcat Creek Bridge Replacement project began earlier this month. Pending weather, vehicle and pedestrian traffic control changes are expected to occur on Friday, May 29.  

Vehicle traffic is currently moved to the outside westbound and eastbound lanes on Fort Riley Blvd. while construction crews build temporary pavement in the medians for vehicular crossovers.  Pedestrian traffic is currently OPEN.  Starting next Friday, vehicle traffic will be moved to the north westbound lanes while the south eastbound lanes and bridge are reconstructed.  Vehicle traffic will be constrained to one westbound and one eastbound lane with eastbound traffic channelized to use the recently constructed crossover pavement. Please see map for details.
For Pedestrian traffic, the Linear Trail will be closed between Richards Drive and Rosencutter Road starting next Friday.  A pedestrian detour will be in place to guide the public through the construction zone and the Fort Riley Blvd/Richards Drive/Rosencutter Road intersection.  The temporary pedestrian crossing will be on the west side of the intersection.  Sidewalks on the west side of Richards Drive and Rosencutter Road will be OPEN.  The Sidewalk/path on the north side of Fort Riley Blvd between Richards Drive and Westwood Road will be CLOSED.
