169 south to reopen, then close

US 169 from Chanute to Earlton will open today. But next week, a three-mile stretch between K-9 and Plummer Avenue north of Chanute will close. And a section in Allen County south of Humboldt will close this summer.

CHANUTE — Crews are reopening a five-mile stretch of U.S. 169 today, from Chanute to near Earlton, the Kansas Department of Transportation announced Tuesday.

The highway reopening marks the end of the first phase of the 13-mile highway pavement reconstruction project in Neosho and Allen counties.

But motorists won’t get a clear shot from Allen County to points south for long.
