TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - After several months, a stretch of road bordering Washburn University is open.

SW 17th Street, between Washburn Avenue and College Avenue, opened Tuesday to local traffic.

Crews have been working to replace concrete curbs, gutters, and sidewalks.

Work on the second phase, stretching from College to Macvicar, has already begun as crews work to demolish and remove the existing street pavement.

The stretch of roadway is expected to be closed until the end of November.
