  • Watch out for construction cones around McPherson, there are a variety of street projects underway in the city.
    As of Monday, a two-inch overlay will be placed from Hartup to Maxwell Street on Kansas Avenue. Traffic will be carried through the construction with one lane in each direction.
    The city is sharing the cost of this overlay with the state as a part of the KLINK program. KLINK refers to Kansas Department of Transportation’s City Connecting Link program. It helps repave linking roads that are often state or federal highways. Kansas Avenue is also a U.S. Highway.
    South Main Street
    The McPherson City Commission approved a turning lane for South Main Street at its meeting Monday.
    Pavement markers will be removed to create a center left turn lane between the railroad tracks and Avenue D. in front of Central Christian College.
    The change has been sanctioned by the KDOT as a means to deal with increased traffic in that area from a new child care center at Central Christian College that will be opening this fall.
    Only striping will be changed. The street will not be widened at this time.
    First Street and Hill Street
    Work continues on the First Street Project.
    The side streets on First Street are open.
    The first half of the paving on Hill Street is scheduled to be done this week. Work continues on the sanitary sewer and storm sewer on the Hill Street.
    Landscapers have still not been able to finish work because of rain here and in others areas where they have work.
    Chestnut Street
    Work is being done on Chestnut Street west of Roosevelt Elementary School. The pavement was removed this week. It remains closed to traffic.
