KDOT announces project in Meade County

Meade, Kan. (westernkansasnews.com)–The Kansas Department of Transportation has begun a chip seal project along K-23, from the Oklahoma/Kansas state line 25.9 miles north to the south city limits of Meade.

Work on K-23 will be completed in smaller sections to reduce impact to motorists, and traffic will be reduced to one lane through the project area. 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-23 will be open to normal traffic when construction is not taking place.
 
Heft and Sons LLC, from Greensburg, is the contractor on this $1 million project, which is expected to be completed by the beginning of September, weather permitting.
 
For more information on this project, contact Larry Meyer, Construction Manager, at (620) 384-7821, or Yazmin Moreno, KDOT Southwest Region Public Affairs Manager, at (620) 260-6397.
