The Kansas Department of Transportation has closed K-147 in Trego County to through traffic as of June 26.

The closure is necessary because of public safety concerns about structural deficiencies found during a recent inspection by KDOT and its engineering consultants on the bridge spanning the Cedar Bluff Reservoir spillway. Plans are currently being developed for an emergency bridge replacement project to be completed in 2020.

Traffic will be detoured using I-70, U.S. 283 and K-4. For more information on the closure, please contact KDOT area engineer Kevin Zimmer at 785-625-9718.
