Road Work Starting On US 56 In Gray County

KSCB News - April 16, 2012 4:34 pm

The Kansas Department of Transportation expects a resurfacing project on US-56 through Gray County to begin by Monday, April 23. The project runs from the Haskell-Gray county line, east to the east city limits of Ensign.

During construction, traffic will be limited to one lane through the work zone, guided by a pilot car. The Kansas DOT reminds drivers to be alert, pay attention to all work zone warning signs, slow down when approaching a work zone and be prepared to stop.

Shilling Construction Company, Inc., of Manhattan, is the primary contractor for this approximately $4.7 million T-WORKS preservation project. KDOT expects the work to be completed by the end of June, weather permitting.

You can learn about this and other T-WORKS projects at www.ksdot.org/tworks . You can also keep track of road construction across Kansas at www.kandrive.org .

If you have questions on this US-56 resurfacing project through Gray County, you may contact Greg Adams, Construction Engineer, at 620-624-4451, or Kirk Hutchinson, Southwest District Public Affairs Manager at 1-877-550-5368 (toll free).
