Construction to begin on US 169

New traffic signs

Drivers, keep your eyes on the road this month as construction along U.S. 169 is set to begin.
The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has two sections of 169 on its construction scheduled to begin April 3, according to the KDOT T-Works website.
In Johnson County, surfacing will be from the Miami/Johnson County line to just south of 175th Street for a total length of about five miles, according to the website.
In Miami County, repairs will begin at the Miami/Johnson County line and continue south about 1 1/2 miles south of the city limits of Spring Hill.
Efforts by Mayor Steven Ellis, the City Council and City staff have brought attention to the four-lane highway.
Last year, after staff and Mayor Ellis voiced their concerns to KDOT, new “red signal ahead” signs were installed at 199th Street and 169 to better alert drivers of red traffic signals.
The total cost of both projects comes out to an estimated $5 million with an expected completion date of December.
