US-160 project in Stanton County Ready To Start

KSCB News - May 28, 2014 1:24 pm

The Kansas Department of Transportation expects a resurfacing project on U.S. 160 in Stanton County to begin on Monday, June 2. The project runs from the Colorado/Kansas state line to the south junction of U.S. 160 and K-27 and includes a surface recycle, followed by a chip seal.

During construction, traffic will be limited to one lane through the work zone, guided by a pilot car. Drivers can expect delays of 15 minutes or less. The Kansas DOT urges drivers to be alert, pay attention to all work zone warning signs, slow down when approaching a work zone and be prepared to stop.

Dustrol, Inc., of Towanda, is the primary contractor on this $1.4 million project. KDOT expects work on the surface recycle phase to be completed by mid-June, weather permitting, with the chip seal portion of the project beginning once wheat harvest is completed.

If you have questions on this project, you can call Larry Meyer, Construction Manager, at 620-384-7821 or Kirk Hutchinson, KDOT Southwest Public Affairs Manager, at 1-877-550-5368 (toll free).
