CHANUTE — With work expected to begin this spring to rebuild more than seven miles of U.S. 169 south of Iola — a project that will shut off access to much of the highway for up to 18 months — motorists farther south will have to wait a while longer for a separate paroject to get started .
Neosho County Commissioners were told Friday a separate project to rebuild 169 from the Humboldt-Chanute Road intersection south to Earlton will not happen this year.
“There is nothing in Neosho County,” Kansas Department of Transportation District Engineer Wayne Gudmonson said, according to the Chanute Tribune.
