Several roads in Manhattan under construction

By  | 

MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- The drive in Manhattan may be littered with construction signs and detours as the city updates roadways.

The westbound lane of Anderson Avenue between College Heights Road and Rebecca Road is closed due to sewer work.

The eastbound lanes will remain open; it’s unknown when that work will be complete.

Just a few miles away on College Avenue, repairs are underway as the city got reports that the street ‘heaved’ making it impassable.
The work is being done in shifts to maintain the flow of traffic.

Assistant City Manager, Kiel Mangus said the headache will be worth it once the work is complete.

“It’s summer season so we have a lot of road construction going on. One we hear a lot about is Allen Road. It’s getting closer we got all the utilities relocated there and their getting ready to start the sub-base and they’ll put up forms and lay concrete so probably about 2 ½ to 3 weeks,” explained Mangus.

The City asks everyone to be patient and to slow down while driving through construction zones.
