Road Closings


Burma Road

Burma Road from K-140 Hwy. to Crawford Street will be closed Monday, July 10th, for the replacement of the deteriorated concrete deck on an existing six-barrel reinforced concrete box (RCB) drainage structure.  No through traffic will be possible during the construction period and motorists are advised to allow a few extra minutes of travel time to reach their destinations.  Completion of the new RCB deck and reopening of this section of Burma Road is anticipated by middle of September.  Of course, completion by this date is dependent on the weather. 

Saline County opened bids on the Reinforced Concrete Box (RCB) Deck Replacement Project on April 20, 2017.  The low bidder was Reece Construction Company, Inc. of Scandia, Kansas.  They were awarded a contract for $102,114.61.  The project is funded from the 2-mil fund for bridge and culvert replacement.  


Crawford Street

The Crawford Street bridge over an unnamed tributary to Gypsum Creek which is located 100 feet east of Gypsum Valley Road was inspected on April 18, 2017 in accordance with the FHWA-mandated bridge inspection program requirements.  As a result of this inspection the bridge was closed on April 18, 2017 to permit the Saline County Road and Bridge Department Engineering staff the opportunity to perform a more detailed assessment of the condition of the bridge.  The closure of this bridge does not cut off access to any private properties.  

Federal law requires that bridges that cannot be certified to carry at least a three-ton load must be closed to protect public safety.  It is not known at this time how long this bridge will be closed.


Donmyer Road

Donmyer Road, from Cloud Street to Magnolia Road will be closed starting July 20th, 2017  (Thursday) morning for the replacement of an existing, narrow, deteriorated drainage structure with a new reinforced concrete box (RCB) drainage structure.  The structure is located on Donmyer Road, approximately 0.3 mile south of Cloud Street.  No through traffic will be possible during the construction period and motorists are advised to allow a few extra minutes of travel time to reach their destinations.  Local and emergency traffic will be provided access to private property within the sections of closed road at all times but only from the sides of the construction zone upon which the property lies.  The only times these properties may not be accessible might be during possible critical stages of construction when it is impractical to carry on construction operations and simultaneously allow local traffic.  Completion of the new RCB and reopening of this section of Donmyer Road is anticipated by end of August.  Of course, completion by this date is dependent on the weather. 

Saline County opened bids on the 2017 Reinforced Concrete Box (RCB) and Rigid Frame Bridge (RFB) Package on May 16th.  This project consists of the replacement of five existing drainage structures with new RCB/RFB culverts.  The low bidder was Reece Construction Company, Inc. of Scandia, Kansas.  They were awarded a contract for $60,069.60 for this particular RCB.  The project is funded from the 2-mil fund for bridge and culvert replacement.  This particular box culvert is first of the five to be replaced.


Magnolia Road

Magnolia Road from Powers Road to Hedville Road will be closed Tuesday, July 11th, for the replacement of a deteriorated metal arch pipe drainage structure with a new reinforced concrete box (RCB) drainage structure.  No through traffic will be possible during the construction period and motorists are advised to allow a few extra minutes of travel time to reach their destinations.  Completion of the new RCB deck and reopening of this section of Magnolia Road is anticipated by end of August.  Of course, completion by this date is dependent on the weather.
