Traffic changes are scheduled to start, Monday, October 10, along U.S. 283 from the Kansas/Oklahoma state line north to the south junction of U.S. 283/U.S.160 and along U.S. 183 from the Kansas/Oklahoma state line north U.S. 160/U.S. 183/K-34 junction.
U.S. 183 and U.S. 283 traffic will be reduced to one lane through the project area. Motorists should be aware of delays of up to 15 minutes as one-lane traffic will be directed by flaggers and a pilot car through the work zone. The lane reduction will be marked by signs and cones. U.S. 183 and U.S. 283 will be open to normal traffic when construction is not taking place.
This project consists of milling of existing pavements and hot mix of asphalt overlays on the driving lanes. Centerline rumble stripes will be installed on the center lines and shoulders. New permanent pavement markings and rock edge wedge will be applied along the roadways near the conclusion of the projects.
APAC, of Hutchinson, is the contractor on these $5.8 million projects, which is expected to be completed by the end of November, weather permitting.
