Floods can develop over a period of days, giving you adequate time to prepare; however, flash floods can develop in a matter of minutes.

These waters are also destructive and can carry debris, rocks and mud.

VICTORY WEEK '19
ROAD CLOSURE UPDATES
The completion of Phase 5 of the Trooper Drive Road repair project from Riffle Range Road to the McCormick intersection will complete June 10. That will be the end of nighttime road work on this project. Phase 6 which repairs 1st Street from Bent Spur Road to Trooper Drive will start June 10 and run through Jul 10. Phase 6 work will be performed during daytime hours.
The project to repair bridge 204 which closes Custer Ave. from McCormick Road to Beeman Place is suspended and road closure and detour routes are extended indefinitely due to eagles nesting in the area. Incidental Take Permit has been submitted to US Fish and Wildlife Service. The take permit is suspected to be issued sometime this spring. Once the permit is issued, the project can resume and completion dates can be determined.

RILEY'S CONFERENCE CENTER TO UNDERGO CHANGES
Fort Riley's Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation is scheduled to begin a conversion project of Riley's Conference Center, 446 Seitz Drive, this summer to a multi-functional recreation center facility.
With the completion of these renovations, Riley's Conference Center's services will better support the community. Mr. David Roudybush, director of Fort Riley Family & MWR, explains "the goal is to provide a space that enhances the quality of life for our families and still provides a venue for meetings and unit functions." Once the conversion is complete, the Recreation Center will remain the primary location for Town Hall meetings, Victory Welcome briefs and hosting large venues such as the Victory Banquet.
