Near the Franklin County line on US 59, scars showing the transition from 4 lanes to two remain, along with the interim crossover, which has been blocked with cones on the northbound end. 18 October 2012

On northbound US 59 approaching US 56, the destination "Olathe" has been covered with plywood, as 56 is closed west of Baldwin City.

The long awaited reconstruction of Iowa Street/US 59 is underway. At the south end of the project, the southbound lanes have been rebuilt in Portland Cement, and the northbound lanes have been torn out awaiting the same treatment.

The sign gantry on southbound I-35 at the north junction with US 59. The next exit (K-68) is mentioned, as is the fact that US 59 is "dual" with I-35, but nowhere is there a mention of US 50. 20 April 2013

At the junction of US 59/Iowa Street with Bob Billings Parkway/15th Street, the traffic signal heads have been realigned to match the temporary traffic patterm. Also, the left turn signal now has a red arrow.
