STERLING, Kan. — KDOT announced Wednesday that sections of four Rice County roads have been closed to through traffic to allow construction of the K-14 realignment project. Two of those roads will be closed permanently, two more will have bridges going over the new highway.

The section of avenues X and V currently closed for construction will reopen as overpasses in about a year. Avenues W and U will be closed permanently as they approach the new highway. 

The $81.7 million realignment of K-14 stretches from Hutchinson to Nickerson to Sterling. The project is expected to be completed by June 16, 2023.
