The public is invited to an informational open house in order to get feedback about  two future bridge projects which will temporarily close sections of K-9 Highway in Norton County.

The open house is Tuesday, October 15, from 5-7p.m. in the Lenora Community Room, 110 N. Main Street.

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

The bridge projects are funded by T-WORKS, the Transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature in May of 2010.
