KDOT has announced that construction will begin on Monday, October 3rd on US-40B for BR #35 between Union Pacific Railroad and Monroe St. in Junction City. The site is located 0.23 miles east of US-77B in Geary County.

This project will remove and replace the existing bridge structure on US-40B. The roadway will be closed, and traffic will be directed to detour using I-70. A single lane in each direction will re-opened by November 2023. The route is the primary connecting link between Junction City and Grandview Plazaa.

The project is expected to be completed no later than June 2024. King Construction is the Prime Contractor.
