Road work on Henry Drive, which provides access to Fort Riley from exit 301 off Interstate 70, is set to begin on July 22.
There are seven phases to the project, which is expected to be completed in March 2020. During construction, traffic will be limited, delayed or detoured, depending on the project phase. The projects run from the frontage road at exit 301 to the railroad bridge north of the Kansas River.
Beginning July 22, traffic will be reduced to one lane, controlled by a traffic signal, from the Kansas River bridge to the railroad bridge. Drivers should expect major delays during this phase, which is expected to be completed by mid-September.
Construction crews will also be working on the shoulders from the frontage road to the Ray Road roundabout beginning July 22. That work is expected to be completed by the end of August.
Drivers may want to consider alternate routes during the construction process. Fort Riley urges all drivers to be alert, use caution, obey reduced speed limits
and be prepared to slow down or stop. The Visitor Control Center at exit 301 will remain open during the project.
Construction updates will be posted on the official Fort Riley Facebook page and the Fort Riley website.
