U.S. Highway 75 was closed Tuesday morning for the removal of the Missouri-Pacific railroad bridge, located approximately two miles north of Lyndon. Workers removed the bridge with bucket loaders and jackhammers Tuesday, allowing debris to fall onto a one-foot dirt overlay. The highway was to remain closed through Thursday, and is scheduled to close again for three days in October when a pedestrian bridge will be installed to accommodate traffic along the Flint Hills Nature Trail.
