Special to the HDN

The Kansas Department of Transportation will have an informational open house to solicit feedback from the public on two bridge projects that will temporarily close sections of Kansas Highway 9 in Norton County.

The open house will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 15 at the Lenora Community Room, 110 N. Main, Lenora.

KDOT engineers will discuss the scheduling of construction and associated detours, as well as share information regarding two bridge replacement projects in Norton County.

The first bridge is located approximately 11.5 miles east of the Norton/Decatur county line on K-9 (between Lenora and the U.S. Highway 283 junction), over the North Fork Solomon River Drainage. The second bridge project is located less than a mile east of the K-9/Kansas Highway 173 junction (between Edmond and Logan) on K-9 Highway, over Big Timber Creek.

Questions, concerns or special needs prior to the meeting can be addressed by calling (785) 877-3315.
