Kansas — The Kansas Department of Transportation has begun a surface recycle and chip seal on K-57 in Geary and Morris Counties.
Work on K-57 will extend from the Jct. of I-70 southeast to Dwight, Ks., approximately 19.7 miles.
Flaggers and a pilot car will direct one lane of traffic through construction. Drivers should be prepared for a delay of up to 15 minutes and plan extra time in their travel schedules. During daylight hours, wide loads should find an alternative route as there will be an 11’ lane width restriction at the equipment.
Dustrol Inc. of Towanda is the prime contractor and has scheduled this $2,099,000 project to be completed by July, weather permitting.
KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through a highway work zone. To stay aware of all road construction projects across Kansas, go to www.kandrive.org or call 5-1-1.
