On Monday, August 10, Douglas County Public Works is planning to close East 2300 Road south of North 1137 Road to all traffic for a drainage maintenance project. The project is expected to take about two weeks, weather permitting.
The project includes increasing the size of an existing culvert, installing two new culverts where they do not currently exist, and increasing the ditch capacity.
This is the second phase of this project. The first phase took place north of North 1137 Road, which is now open to traffic. Once the second phase is complete, Public Works employees will place an asphalt patch over the new culvert locations and then they will seed and mulch the area.
The area is located between North 1200 and 1100 Roads, southeast of the City of Eudora.
