Route M in Atchison County is scheduled to close TODAY as part of the wind farm installation. Rock Creek Wind Project, LLC plans to close Route M just west of 170th Street on Thursday, Aug. 31 between 5 and 7 p.m.
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.
