US-160 road work in Stanton and Grant Counties ready to start

KSCB News - April 27, 2016 8:21 am

The Kansas Department of Transportation expects a resurfacing project on U.S. 160 in Stanton and Grant counties to start possibly as early as Monday, May 2, weather permitting. The project begins at the north junction of K-27 and U.S. 160 at Johnson City and continues to the west city limits of Ulysses, a distance of 21 miles. Work includes milling the top one inch of asphalt pavement and overlaying it with 1-½ inches of new asphalt.

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.

APAC Kansas, Inc., Shears Division, of Hutchinson is the primary contractor on this $2.8 million T-WORKS preservation project. KDOT expects work on this project to be completed by the end of June, depending on weather.

If you have questions on this project, you can call Larry Meyer, Construction Manager, at 620-384-7821, or Kirk Hutchinson, KDOT Southwest Public Affairs Manager, at 1-877-550-5368 (toll free).
