Road Work Begins on US-160

KSCB News - August 18, 2009 12:00 am

The Kansas Department of Transportation expects work to begin Thursday, August 20, on a resurfacing project on US-160 from the east city limits of Ulysses to the junction of US-160, US-83 and K-144, a distance of about 26 miles.

During construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zone, guided by a pilot car. Lane width will be reduced to eleven feet. Drivers can expect delays of 15 minutes or less. The Kansas DOT urges all motorists to stay alert, pay attention to warning signs and slow down when approaching or driving through a work zone.

KDOT expects the project to be completed by October, depending on the weather. Heft and Sons, L.L.C., of Greensburg, Kansas, is the primary contractor on this approximately $2.5 million project.

If you have questions on this resurfacing project in Grant and Haskell counties, you may call Chuck Oldaker, Ulysses Area Engineer, at 620-356-1531, or Kirk Hutchinson, Public Affairs Manager for KDOT Southwest, at 620-276-3241.
