Work continues on the U.S. 50/83/400 bypass in Garden City and crews are expected to begin work on phase IA on Monday, August 1. Phase IA is expected to last 30 days and will close the bypass from Third Street to the west half of the Hobo Fuel Center entrance on the bypass. In addition, the bypass from K-156 to Mary Street remains closed at this time.
The detour will remain the same during phase IA with traffic following U.S. 50 Bus/Kansas Ave to U.S. 83 Bus/Taylor Ave. to the U.S. 50 bypass on the west side of Garden City. Truck traffic may access the Hobo Fuel Center, C Bar H and the Crazy House by following Jennie Barker Rd. to Mary Street and taking the Mary Street northbound entrance to the bypass. Traffic will travel north/west to the Hobo Fuel Center, C Bar H and the Crazy House and may exit center by going south/east on the bypass back to the Mary Street exit and taking Mary Street back to Jennie Barker Rd.
Truck traffic is reminded that Mary Street west of the bypass and Campus Dr. north of Kansas Ave. are not truck routes and should be used by trucks for local deliveries only.
