Tuttle Creek State Park To Remain Open Amid Dam Improvements

Three major construction projects, led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District, are in-the-works near Tuttle Creek Dam. Construction is underway, and while traffic and entrance into Tuttle Creek State Park will be rerouted, the park will remain open to the public throughout construction.

Highway K-13, between its intersections with River Pond Road and Dyer Road/Spillway Marina Road, was closed beginning February 21 and will be closed for an estimated 8 to 10 months. Detour plans for K-13 will route motorists to Highways K-16, U.S. 77 and U.S. 24.

The spillway bridge project will temporarily eliminate right turns on the dam for park visitors coming out of River Pond Area’s east exit (past the park office), however, motorists will be able to turn left and go across the dam.

The stilling basin rehabilitation project (tubes) below the dam will start the week of March 19 and is estimated to last 18 to 24 months. The work will result in the closure of a portion of River Pond Road. During the overlap of this project with the spillway bridge deck replacement, the River Pond Area of Tuttle Creek State Park public access will only be available via eastbound K-13 across the dam.

For more information, contact Tuttle Creek State Park at (785) 539-7941 or visit the park Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TuttleCreekStatePark.
