This project will replace one existing bridge and nine existing culverts, followed by pavement replacement and resurfacing. Construction started in March 2015, and will be completed in November 2015. The project is funded thru Douglas County’s capital improvement plan. KDOT provided additional funding for roadside safety improvements. The US Fish and Wildlife Service provided additional funding to restore aquatic habitat under and adjacent to the reconstructed bridge.
This major reconstruction project will improve Route 458 from E800 Road to the curve at Clinton Dam. The improvements will add paved shoulders and flatten roadside slopes. Existing narrow culverts will be replaced, intersection curves will be realigned to eliminate 40 mph speed zones, and the pavement will be resurfaced. Construction is scheduled to take place in 2017. The project is funded thru Douglas County’s capital improvement plan.
