Road Closures

Halstead Road

Halstead Road from Armstrong Road to State Street will be closed starting Friday, December 15th, to permit rehabilitation of the existing bridge over Mulberry Creek to begin. The existing bridge is 276 feet long, consisting of five spans (48 feet–60 feet–60 feet–60 feet–48 feet) and has a roadway width of 24 feet. It was designed for a HS15 truck load in accordance with the A.A.S.H.O Specifications, 1949 Edition and was constructed in 1955. A.A.S.H.O. was the forerunner of the current American Association of State Highway and Transportation Official (A.A.S.H.T.O.). The total truck and load weight for a HS15 truck is 30,000 pounds versus today’s standard HS20-44 truck and load weight of 80,000 pounds. This project consists of the following:

a. Strengthening of the existing steel bridge beams;

b. Replacement of the existing, deteriorated bridge deck (24’ roadway and 26’ total width) with a new wider bridge deck (30’ roadway and 32’ total width).

Sealed bids were opened November 20, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. for Project No. 17-5352 Rehabilitation of the Halstead Road Bridge. Four companies submitted bids. The low bidder was King Construction Company, Inc. of Hesston, Kansas. Their bid was $549,934. King stated that work will be completed on or before June 1, 2018. Saline County Road and Bridge Department, Engineering Division, completed all required surveying, hydraulic analysis, bridge geometric design, permitting, and structural design with in-house staff (resulting in cost savings for the taxpayers of Saline County).

Sundgren Road

Sundgren Road, from Hohneck Road to Muir Road will be closed starting Monday (January 15th) morning for the replacement of an existing, narrow, deteriorated drainage structure with a new rigid frame bridge (RFB) drainage structure. The structure is located on Sundgren Road, 0.1 mile west of Muir Road. 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 RFB and reopening of this section of Sundgren Road is anticipated by March. 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 or RFB culverts. The low bidder on this particular site was King Construction Company, Inc. of Hesston, Kansas. They were awarded a contract for $103,088.67 for this particular RFB. The project is funded from the 2-mil fund for bridge and culvert replacement. This particular box culvert is fourth of the five to be replaced.
