Bridge work meeting is Aug. 5 at BESIC
Three bridges that will be replaced on U.S. Highway 56 west of Baldwin City in 2013 will be the topic for a public open house from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 5 at Baldwin Elementary School Intermediate Center.
The Kansas Department of Transportation will be conducting the open house. Location maps, construction timelines and traffic impacts, including detour routes, will be available to view. There will be no formal presentation.
The bridges were built in the 1920s and are scheduled for replacement because of age and deterioration. They are within a 2.5-mile stretch immediately west of Baldwin City.
