Construction continues on the US-54 expansion in Seward County.  With two of the four new lanes completed, the Kansas Department of Transportation, announces that traffic will shift to the newly completed east bound lanes on Thursday, May 25, 2017 while work continues on the new west bound lanes.  Road O will now be opened to the south of 54.
