Resurfacing project to begin in Grant/Haskell counties

Traffic reductions are scheduled to start Tuesday, April 16, for highway work that will take place along U.S. 160 from the east city limits of Ulysses east to the U.S. 83 interchange in Grant/Haskell counties.

According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, this project will resurface U.S. 160 in Grant/Haskell counties. Rumble strips will be added to the roadway’s centerline and shoulders. At the conclusion of the project, permanent pavement markings will be installed along the roadway.

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. Signs and cones will mark the lane reduction. U.S. 160 will be open to normal traffic when construction is not taking place. The work zone area will be restricted to 12 feet in width and 75 feet in length.

Venture Corporation, from Great Bend, is the contractor on this $7.3 million project, which is expected to be completed by the mid-June, weather permitting.
