Construction of new passing lanes on U.S. 75 in Brown County is scheduled to begin Monday, June 7, weather permitting. The project is approximately three miles north of the K-20/U.S. 75 intersection and extends north 2.5 miles. The bridge over Plum Creek will also be widened during the project.

According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, both northbound and southbound passing lanes are being added. One lane in each direction will remain open to traffic for a majority of the project. Traffic will be reduced to one lane with the usage of temporary signals during a later phase of the project.

Work will take place Monday through Friday during daytime hours, and is expected to be completed by April 2022.

Hamm Inc., of Perry is the contractor on the $8 million project.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through a highway work zone. To stay aware of all road construction projects across Kansas, go to www.kandrive.org or call 5-1-1.
