Detours Ahead as KDOT works to tie U.S. 160 and K-144 into new Overpass Exchange in Haskell County

Joe Denoyer - June 21, 2017 8:55 am

U.S. 160 will close from the U.S. 83/U.S. 160/K-144 intersection in Haskell county west to the U.S. 160/K-190 intersection in Grant county.  K-144 will also close from the same intersection to the K190/U.S. 56 intersection in Gray county as crews begin work to realign U.S.160 and K-144 with the newly constructed overpass in Haskell County.

K-144 will close on June 26th and remain closed until work is completed sometime in July weather permitting.  U.S. 160 is scheduled to close on Tuesday, June 27th and will remain closed until work is completed by late August weather permitting.

Traffic will be detoured on K-190, U.S. 56 and U.S. 83 during this phase of the project.  KDOT urges drivers to be alert, pay attention to all work zone warning signs, slow down when approaching a work zone and be prepared to stop.

Venture Corporation is the primary contractor on the project with an approximate construction cost of $22.3 million.

For more information on this project, please contact Greg Adams (620) 629-5797 or Lisa Knoll, KDOT District 6 Public Affairs Manager, at 620-765-7080.
