On US 59 south of Lawrence, construction is underway to tie the existing 4 lane alignment with the new freeway. The first part of the project involves building the new southbound lanes. To do so, traffic is moved over to the Northbound lanes.

Here's a shot of the new US 59 southbound lanes from the former 4 lane/2 lane transition area.

The junction assembly for US 159/K-4A on southbound US 59 near Nortonville also features a reassurance marker for westbound K-4, which begins just past the US 159 junction. 25 March 2012

Here's the guide assembly directing southbound `US 59 traffic at the US 159/K-4A junction. Technically, there should be a "TO" marker between the US 59 and K-4 markers. 25 March 2012

The former Santa Fe depot in Atchison is the location of the east junction of US 73 with US 59. Note that there is no reference to K-7 at the intersection... the K-7 marker was posted ahead of the intersection, and there is a reassurance marker just past the intersection
