The Kansas Turnpike Authority has awarded contracts for two-year bridge projects in Wichita and between Emporia and Topeka.
In Wichita, a project will widen and replace decks on the two Arkansas River bridges at mile marker 44.325, the Turnpike Authority said in a news release. The location is just west of K-15, near MacArthur.
The contract – for $7.19 million – has been awarded to A.M. Cohron & Son of Atlantic, Iowa.
Another two-year project will reconstruct the two bridges at mile marker 157.013 and remove the two bridges at mile marker 157.143, the Turnpike Authority said. The location is in Osage County, about halfway between Emporia and Topeka.
That contract – for $4.48 million – was awarded to King Construction of Hesston.
The Turnpike Authority said the construction details will be available at www.ksturnpike.com; information about the impact on traffic will be posted at www.kandrive.org.
