KDOT Pavement Testing Continues in Southwest Kansas

Joe Denoyer - August 23, 2018 10:07 am

 

KDOT will run pavement strength tests on highway sections in Ford, Finney and Seward counties from Monday, August 27 thru Friday, August 31.  Sections tested will include the following:

·        U.S. 50 in Ford and Finney counties;

·        U.S. 54 in Seward county.

The KDOT testing crew will use a falling weight deflectometer to determine pavement strength on each section of highway.  Traffic will be reduced to one lane guided by a pilot car through the test zone during testing.  Travelers can expect delays of 15 minutes or less during daylight hours.  KDOT reminds all drivers to use caution and obey signs and flaggers in test zones.

For more information on this project, contact Lisa Knoll, KDOT District 6 Public Affairs Manager, at (620) 765-7080.
