U.S. Highway 169 and 1000 Road Intersection Closing Wednesday


The Kansas Department of Transportation plans to close and begin reconstruction on the intersection of 1000 Road and U.S. 169 at Welda on Wednesday. No through traffic will be allowed on 1000 Road.


The road work is part of the KDOT project to reconstruct 7½ miles of U.S. 169 in Anderson County. U.S. 169 remains closed from K-58 north to the south U.S. 169/U.S. 59 junction, with traffic following the signed state route detour on U.S. 54 and U.S. 59.


U.S. 169 traffic will be reduced to one lane, controlled by signals, north of the south U.S. 169/U.S. 59 junction. Bettis Asphalt & Construction of Topeka is the primary contractor on the $21 million modernization project.
