Orange Cone Construction Season

Warmer weather is here, and that means repairs to our city streets. We realize road construction can be frustrating. Our goal is to get everyone where they need to be in a safe and timely manner. Please be patient, as we’re all in this together.

Here are some helpful tips dealing with Orange Cone Season:

  • Plan for extra commute time. Check Topeka Metro’s website for the latest detour updates to see if your route is affected. Go to Routes and Detours on our home page. Notices regarding temporary bus stops could also be posted.
  • Give your bus operator a break – they are dealing with maneuvering around detours that can cause delays, which affects their schedule. They are doing the best they can.
  • Watch out for construction workers. Fatalities occur annually because someone was driving too fast or not watching out for others. Let’s keep everyone safe.
  • Appreciate the smooth roads we’ll all experience when projects are completed!
