Doniphan Co to seek funding for five bridge projects

Doniphan Co Courthouse

(KNZA) The Doniphan County Commission has agreed to seek funding through two Kansas Department of Transportation programs for five bridge replacement projects.

An application will be made through KDOT's Local Bridge Improvement program for fiscal year 2025 for the replacement of three bridges.

They include a bridge on Elgin Road, north of 125th Road; bridge on 235th Road, west of Peck Road; and bridge on Oxide Road, north of 195th Road.

Removal of the bridge on Oxide Road would be considered a sacrifice bridge allowing a minimum of an additional $50,000 in grant funding, if the county decides to move foward with the project.

An application will also be made through KDOT's Off-System Bridge program for fiscal year 2026 for the replacement of two bridges. They include a bridge on Larkinburg Road, south of 150th Road and a bridge on 190th Road, east of Randolph Road.

According to the unofficial minutes from their May 13th meeting, the Commission took the action on the recommendation of engineer David Beach with Schwab-Eaton.
