HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Hutchinson Public Works says that Apple Lane is now closed between 17th and 20th Avenues as crews replace a small bridge. The project was delayed two weeks by weather.
City Engineer Jeff Petersen says if all goes well the bridge should be finished no later than April 1. Once that’s completed work will begin on the road between 17th and 20th. Once that is finished the road work will move north in sections. The detour for motorists runs from 17th Avenue to K-61 over to 30th Avenue.
The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of the summer.
Also, after being delayed due to the cold weather, work crews are expected to get back to work on the North Main project. Crews will begin replacing the curb, gutter and sidewalks along the east side of Main between 7th and 5th. That will be followed by a complete reconstruction of the intersections on the east side.
Once all of that is completed the entire street will be milled and overlaid from 13th to 5th Avenue. Petersen says that should be completed this spring.
