The westbound portion of K-18 from 56th Avenue to just west of K-113/Seth Child Road will be reduced to one lane April 8 and April 9 for the installation of traffic control items, according to a press release from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
In addition, on K-18 from 56th Avenue to just west of K-113/Seth Child Road the eastbound and westbound lanes will be moved to the new westbound K-18 roadway and reduced to one lane in each direction for pavement reconstruction April 15 to April 19, weather permitting.
The lane closures will remain in place until late fall 2013, according to KDOT.
Drivers should expect delays during peak travel times and should use alternative routes if possible.
These closures are for construction work on the overall improvement project that will reconstruct a 7-mile stretch of K-18 from Manhattan to Ogden to a freeway when completed.
There are three construction phases included in the overall K-18 improvement project.
