U.S. 54 Resurfacing Project to Bbegin in Meade County

Joe Denoyer - July 10, 2023 10:59 am

Traffic changes are scheduled to start July 14 along U.S. 54 from 1.8 miles east of the Seward/Meade county line east 14.8 miles to the west city limits of Meade.

U.S. 54 traffic will be reduced to one lane through the project area for milling and overlay work on the driving lanes and shoulders. 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. 54 will be open to normal traffic when construction is not taking place.

APAC-Kansas Inc., of Hutchison, is the contractor on this $6.7 million project, which is expected to be completed by the end of October, weather permitting.

For more information on this project, contact Larry Meyer, Construction Manager, at (620) 384-7821, or Yazmin Moreno, KDOT Southwest Region Public Affairs Manager, at (620) 260-6397.
