In late February, KDOT is set to begin a project to replace the K-58 bridge over Dinner Creek. This bridge is located 4.5 miles west of Gridley, and 13 miles east of Madison, just east of the Greenwood-Coffey County line.
Traffic control and detours will be set up on Feb. 24. K-58 will be closed at the bridge site, and demolition is slated to begin Wednesday, Feb. 26. Eastbound K-58 traffic will detour around the project south on K-99, then east on U.S. 54 and north on U.S. 75, looping back around to K-58 past the bridge site. Westbound traffic will follow the same pattern in the opposite direction.
The project will replace the steel beam bridge with a concrete bridge. The surface of the new bridge will be set above the historic high water level, and berms and grading will be modified to improve drainage along the right-of-way.
Barring any unforseen delays, KDOT expects the new bridge to be open to traffic in mid-September.
