K-4 in Saline County

Project description

The project includes the reconstruction of existing K-4 from the Smoky Hill River Bridge east about 7 miles to Kipp Road. The new alignment of K-4 will be offset to the north through a majority of the project limits to address several safety improvements including a flatter profile, improved intersection sight distance and the addition of paved shoulders. Traffic will be maintained during construction via existing K-4. Temporary widening or closures with detours may be required at the eastern limits of the project.

K-4 in Saline County is a highway Modernization project currently in the Development Pipeline for the IKE Program. The tentative construction letting is planned for fiscal year 2024.
