Douglas County Public Works now plans to close Route 1061 (E 2200 Road) to through traffic between Route 458 (N 1000 Road) and K-10 Highway beginning Wednesday, July 31, for a large culvert replacement project. It was originally scheduled to close Monday, July 29. The closure postponement is necessary since construction on Route 458 from E 1900 Road to E 2000 Road will not be completed and the road opened to traffic by Monday, July 29.
The culvert is located 0.38 miles north of N 1100 Road. The Route 1061 closure date is contingent upon construction on Route 458 from E 1900 Road to E 2000 Road being completed and opened to traffic. Route 1061 will not be closed until Route 458 is opened to traffic.
Traffic on Route 1061 will be detoured around the closure. The signed detour will follow Route 458 (N 1000 Road), Route 1057 (E 1900 Road), and K-10 Highway. Traffic needing to access local properties within the closure will be able to do so, but will not be able to cross the project location between N 1100 Road and N 1150 Road.
Public Works crews will construct this project. The closure duration is expected to be about six weeks.
Douglas County’s Capital Improvement Plan is funding this project along with a $50,000 grant from U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
