KDOT pavement testing begins in Grant and Hamilton counties

The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will be conducting pavement tests on highway sections in Hamilton and Grant counties from Monday, Oct. 14, thru Friday, Oct. 18.  Sections tested will include: 

  • K-25 from the north city limit of Ulysses to the Grant/Kearny county line;
  • U.S. 50 in Hamilton County;
  • K-27 from the Stanton/Hamilton county line to the south city limit of Syracuse.

The KDOT testing crew will use a falling weight deflectometer to determine pavement strength on each section of highway. Traffic will be reduced to one lane guided by a pilot car through the work zone during testing. Travelers can expect delays of 15 minutes or less. KDOT reminds all drivers to use caution and obey signs and flaggers in test zones.
