PROJECT PLANNED ON STAGG HILL ROAD
On Monday, April 27, Shilling Construction Company will begin milling and laying asphalt on Stagg Hill Road from the Manhattan city limit west toward K-18. The road will be reduced to one lane during the construction. Traffic will be allowed through the project, but drivers should expect delays of up to 15 minutes. Fresh asphalt oil will be applied, so motorists should take alternate routes when possible. The project is anticipated to be completed in three days. If you have questions concerning this project, contact the Riley County Public Works Department, 6215 Tuttle Creek Blvd., Manhattan, or call 537-6330.

DAY USE PASS AVAILABLE
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Tuttle Creek Lake says the 2015 annual day use pass is now available. The annual day use pass costs $30 and is valid nationwide. It permits the holder and accompanying passengers to use boat ramps and swim beaches at Corps of Engineers parks without further charge. When using a day use recreation facility at a Corps lake, either an annual pass or a daily pass is required. At Tuttle Creek Lake, the only area that requires a day use fee is Tuttle Creek Cove Park. A boat ramp day use fee is collected April 1 to Oct. 31, and a beach use fee is collected May 15 to Sept. 15. Golden Age, Golden Access and America the Beautiful Senior and Access passport holders are eligible to purchase the annual permit at half price. State park permits do not reciprocate with Corps day use permits. For more information on the day use fee program, visit the Tuttle Creek Lake Visitor Center at 5020 Tuttle Creek Blvd., Manhattan, or call 785-539-8511.
