City to improve intersection near hospital in 2020

Staff writer

Hillsboro will receive $600,000 to improve the intersection of US-56 and Industrial Rd. in 2020.

“The new hospital is there and we need to get traffic slowed down on eastbound so they can move off the highway and safely make a right hand turn on Industrial,” city administrator Larry Paine said.

The grant is part of Kansas Department of Transportation’s City Connecting Link Improvement, which funds road-improvement projects to state highways that extend through cities.
