U.S. Highway 50, Anderson Building improvements before Lyon County Commission

Lyon County commissioners have a busy day Wednesday with two meetings before noon.

 

The board will be represented at a special meeting on the future of U.S. Highway 50 early in the day, attending the U.S. Highway Access Management Plan meeting at 7 am at the Trusler Business Center. Commissioners and other stakeholders will give KDOT their thoughts in person about desired future improvements, including more passing lanes or a prolonged approach to make the highway four lanes from Emporia to Hutchinson.

Following that meeting, commissioners will roll into their study meeting, which will start at 9 am in the County Courthouse instead of the normal 8 am. BG Consultants will present plans for improving the Fairgrounds Anderson Building. Commissioners have wanted to move the bathrooms from the southeast corner to the west edge, improve the infrastructure and enhance the appearance of the building, but the state has denied grant applications the past two years. The presentation will be at 9:30 am.
