Page last updated: December 11, 2023

Project Updates

The project team is moving forward with design, and based on public comments received is making the following updates:

  • Adding a northbound to eastbound right-turn acceleration lane at the U.S. 54 and 10th Avenue intersection
  • Moving the divided section of U.S. 54 further east to allow the U.S. 54 and 11th Avenue intersection to remain open
  • Removing the proposed turn lanes at the U.S. 54 and 15th Avenue intersection

Project Description

KDOT is completing preliminary design on a bridge replacements project along U.S. 400, east of Mullinville. The project will redesign the U.S. 400 and U.S. 54 junction east of Mullinville. The project would replace two bridges on U.S. 400 (over U.S. 54 and the Union Pacific Railroad) with one structure to improve vertical clearance and increase roadway width.

The team is also exploring intersection improvements at U.S. 54 and 10th Avenue as well as U.S. 400 / U.S. 54 and 15th Avenue.
