Weekend road closing in south Wichita

November 10, 2016 - 5:46 pm
WICHITA, Kan. - A section of K-15 will be shut down this weekend to replace a rail line that feeds into Spirit Aerosystesm.  

K-15 between 31st south and MacArthur will be shut down beginning Friday at 6:00 p.m.  Kansas Department of Transportation spokesman Tom Hein says it's more than just a repair job.  "They are actually going to remove all the rails and all the concrete under it," Hein said.

KAKE News reports a spokesperson for Spirit Aerosystems saying that the current tracks are safe but newer equipment will benefit the company as it plans for a higher demand for plane parts.

The road is expected to re-open by 6:00 a.m. Monday morning.
