Route M in Atchison County is scheduled to close both today and tomorrow as part of the wind farm installation. Rock Creek Wind Project, LLC will close Route M today and tomorrow, Aug. 4 and 5, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Both closures will be approximately one mile north of U.S. Route 136.
As part of this project, large cranes used by the contractor will be moving across Routes C, M, N, YY and U.S. Route 136 at various times during the upcoming weeks. When the cranes are moved, it will require a full closure of the roadway. Most of these closures should take four hours or less.
Each of the towers will require multiple, slow-moving, oversized loads with police escorts navigating to each tower location. This may cause local travelers some delays.
