(Scott City, KS) (westernkansasnews.com)
While just one of the two recent deaths of KDOT workers killed while on duty is attributable to a motorist driving through a work zone—the incidents serve as a good reminder for drivers to be especially attentive when workers and equipment are on the highway.
Southwest District spokesperson Kirk Hutchinson says crack seal repair work will be underway intermittently for the next two weeks on Highway-50 West of Garden City. Motorists should be prepared to slow down in the work zone. Hutchinson reports that there is also a resurfacing project underway in on K-96 from Jefferson Street in Scott City to the Scott/Lane county line, a distance of about 12 miles. The Scott City project is expected to be completed by mid-September, weather permitting. During construction, traffic will be limited to one lane through the work zone, guided by a pilot car. Drivers can expect delays of 15 minutes or less
