KDOT Pavement Testing Begins in Southwest Kansas
Joe Denoyer - October 6, 2021 8:25 am
The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will conduct pavement tests on highway sections in several southwest Kansas counties from Monday, Oct. 11, thru Thursday, Oct. 14. Sections tested will include:
- U.S. 160 in Grant and Stanton counties;
- U.S. 56 in Morton County;
- K-25 in Stevens County;
- K-27 in Stanton and Morton counties.
The KDOT testing crew will use a falling weight deflectometer to determine pavement strength on each section of highway. The deflectometer will be traveling with a crash attenuator at reduced speeds. Motorists should expect delays of 15 minutes or less.
