Resurfacing project to begin in Kearny County

Kearny County, Kan. (westernkansasnews.com)–A resurfacing project is set to begin next week in Kearny County.

Traffic changes are scheduled to start on Monday, April 24, along K-25 from the Wichita/Kearny county line south to the U.S. 50/ K-25 junction.
 
K-25 traffic will be reduced to one lane through the project area to allow for a project to recycle the existing asphalt pavement, followed by a chip seal. Motorists should be aware of delays of up to 15 minutes as one-lane traffic will be directed by flaggers and a pilot car through the work zone. The lane reduction will be marked by signs and cones. K-25 will be open to normal traffic when construction is not taking place.
 
Dustrol Inc. of Towanda, is the contractor on this $2.5 million project, which is expected to be completed by the end of June, weather permitting.
 
For more information on this project, contact Larry Meyer, Area Construction Manager, at (620) 384-7821, or Yazmin Moreno, KDOT Public Affairs Manager for the southwest region, at (620) 260-6397.
