Two Major Manhattan Intersections To Be Under Construction

By  | 

MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- Starting Monday, April 14, two major intersections in Manhattan will be major work zones.

Additional turn lanes will be constructed at the Tuttle Creek Boulevard and McCall Road intersection and at the US Highway 24 and East Poyntz Avenue intersection. Lane reductions will occur throughout the project at both intersections, and delays should be expected and accounted for.

The projects are expected to be complete by August 1.

The US 24 and Poyntz project at the entrance to Manhattan Town Center will include construction of new double left-turn lanes for southbound and eastbound traffic and dual right-turn lanes for northbound traffic.

The McCall and Tuttle Creek Boulevard project will add a second left-turn lane for westbound traffic and rebuilding the shoulder to create a right-turn lane.

The projects are being funded by the City and the Kansas Department of Transportation.

Drivers are asked to drive slowly in the construction areas, obey all posted traffic control signs and use caution around the work zones. Travelers encouraged to avoid the area and seek alternative routes during construction.
