US-160 Road Work in Seward County Starts

KSCB News - May 3, 2016 1:11 pm

The Kansas Department of Transportation expects work to begin as early as Wednesday, May 4, on a resurfacing project on U.S. 160 in Seward County. The project runs from the U.S. 160/83 junction in Seward County to the Seward/Meade County line.

During construction, traffic will be limited to one lane through the work zone, guided by a pilot car. Drivers can expect delays of 15 minutes or less. The Kansas DOT 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.

J&R Sand Company, Inc., of Liberal is the primary contractor on this $1.5 million T-WORKS preservation project. KDOT expects work on this project to be completed by the end of May, depending on weather.

If you have questions on this project, you can call Craig Schlott, Construction Engineer, at 620-276-3241, or Kirk Hutchinson, KDOT Southwest Public Affairs Manager, at 1-877-550-5368 (toll free).
