KDOT to close access to Murray Road

By The Mercury

On Sunday, the Kansas Department of Transportation will close Murray Road access at K-18 for good, an official said.

But for drivers who need to get to that area, particularly businesses located there, KDOT will open Skyway Drive at Scenic Drive. That means drivers headed to the Briggs car dealership and other businesses will need to turn off much sooner than usual.

Access to Manhattan Regional Airport will continue to be through the 56th Avenue interchange.

Jerry Haug, construction manager for KDOT, said his best advice is for drivers to follow signs and turn off their GPS systems, which aren’t updated for the changes.
