KDOT: Survey Work To Begin Next Week For K-55 Bridges


A field survey for the proposed replacement of K-55 bridges in Sumner County is expected to start around Monday.

According to a news release from the Kansas Department of Transportation Thursday, the survey involves the Arkansas River drainage bridge 8.39 miles east of the U.S. 81/K-55 junction and the Antelope Creek Bridge 9.20 miles east of the junction. The survey length is about 6,000 feet, and the survey will be based on the existing alignment.

The field survey, expected to be completed by Nov. 15, will gather information needed for detailed design of the proposed improvements.

A member of the survey crew first will contact property owners and/or tenants for permission to enter private property. Survey activities will include the use of survey instruments on the ground to determine locations of existing features within the survey corridor.

Joe Bowen, P.S., Survey Project Manager, KDOT, will be in charge of this survey for the Kansas Department of Transportation.
