U.S. 75 Bridge Improvements in Osage County

Page last updated: April 03, 2024

Project Description

Multiple bridge improvements are coming to U.S. 75 in Osage County. KDOT will begin resurfacing and patching the U.S. 75 bridges over Frog Creek, 333rd, 325th and 341st streets this year. In 2025, KDOT will reconstruct the bridge deck on the U.S. 75 bridges over the BNSF railroad and the Marais des Cygnes River. This project is expected to last two construction seasons, and during this time, traffic will be directed to K-31/W 309th Street. Finally, the U.S. 75 bridges over Frog Creek and 341st Street will be replaced. This work will not start earlier than 2027 and will also require traffic to be detoured from U.S. 75 to K-31/W 309th Street.
