$54.8 million highway expansion in Cherokee County

CHEROKEE COUNTY – The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) plans to expand U.S 166 in Cherokee County.

KDOT expects the work to begin around the week of January 3rd.

The $54.8 million dollar project expands a six-mile section of U.S. 166 into a four-lane expressway.

KDOT will construct the expansion between U.S. 166/U.S. 400 and U.S.166/K-26 junctions and it includes the construction of interchanges at U.S. 400 and K-26.

U.S. 166 traffic will not be affected during the early project phases.

The expanded U.S. 166 alignment and interchanges will be open to unrestricted traffic by late May 2024, weather permitting.

KDOT will provide updates on highway closures and detours as work continues.
