KSCB News - October 11, 2011 12:18 pm
The Kansas Department of Transportation expects work on US-83 north of Liberal to begin by Wednesday, October 12. The resurfacing project runs from the north city limits of Liberal to a point 9/10 mile north of the US-83/K-51 junction.
During the project, traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zone, guided by a pilot car. Drivers can expect delays of less than 15 minutes during daylight hours. The Kansas DOT reminds drivers to pay attention when approaching a work zone, slow down and be prepared to stop.
Vance Brothers, Inc., of Kansas City, Missouri, is the primary contractor on this approximately $1.2 million project. KDOT expects the work to be completed by late October.
