A disassembled crane sits next to the base of what will be a wind turbine in northern Allen County. A stretch of U.S. 59 north of Moran will be closed Monday in order for such a crane to be moved across the highway.

A portion of U.S. 59 will be closed north of Moran between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday, in order for crews to move a wind tower crane across the highway.

The highway will be closed from Rhode Island to South Dakota Road, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.

There will be no signed detour for the closure. Motorists will be required to find their own alternate routes.
