BOURBON COUNTY, Kan. — This week, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will begin a survey for the replacement of the Turkey Creek bridge on U.S. 54 in Bourbon County. The bridge is 1.2 miles east of the U.S. 54/K-3 south junction. 

The approximate length of the survey area is 2,500 feet. The survey is based on the existing highway alignment and is expected to be finished by Sept. 7. 

Activities include the use of survey instruments on the ground to determine locations of existing features within the corridor. A member of the survey crew will contact property owners or tenants for permission to enter private property. Joe Bowen will manage the survey for KDOT. Persons with questions may contact KDOT Public Affairs Manager Priscilla Petersen, (620) 902-6433.
