***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***
Leavenworth County Public Works Department

We are pleased to announce that 207th Street (County Route #9) is now open to traffic. The replacement of Bridge ST-1 on 207th street south of Dempsey Road that began on September 15th, 2014 has been completed. Some remaining work such as paint striping, seeding, and cleanup will commence when the weather allows, but will not impact the flow of traffic. The Public Works Department appreciates the support and patience of the public as we work to make needed improvements to the road and bridge infrastructure in Leavenworth County.

ROAD CLOSURE AND LANE REDUCTION

Closure of Coffin Road between 167th Street and 159th Street, and lane reduction of County Route #18 (167th Street) north of Santa Fe Trail begins Monday October 13, 2014.

Leavenworth County is scheduled to commence with construction activities for the rehabilitation of the concrete decks of Bridge K-11 (Coffin Road over Salt Creek) and K-14 (County Route #18 north of Coffin Road). Coffin road will be completely closed to through traffic, but County Route #18 (167th Street) will be reduced to one lane with traffic control over the bridge. Weather permitting, these bridge projects are expected to commence October 13, 2014, and is estimated to be complete late in calendar year 2014.

The Public Works Department understands that this bridge replacement project will be an inconvenience to the travelling public, and appreciates the patience of the motorists and residents who will be affected.
