U.S. 169 Highway Project from Welda to the U.S. 59 Junction Underway, Detour in Effect 
  The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) closed a section of U.S. 169 to traffic between Maryland Road at Welda and the south U.S. 169/U.S. 59 junction as of April 15. The closure will be in effect until late 2020.
  Northbound U.S. 169 traffic will be placed on a

signed state route detour as follows: from the

U.S. 169/U.S. 54 junction at Iola, travel east on

U.S. 54 to the U.S. 54/U.S. 59 junction at Moran,

then travel north and west on U.S. 59 to the south

U.S. 59/U.S. 169 junction. Southbound U.S. 169

traffic should take the same detour route in the

opposite direction.                                       

  The highway closure is part of the $21 million project to reconstruct and rehabilitate 7½ miles of U.S. 169 in Anderson County. Work started in early March. Bettis Asphalt & Construction of Topeka is the primary contractor.
