Traffic has been a little slow on Hwy. 69 that traverses north and south through Fort Scott.
Beginning earlier this month Heckert Construction Company, Pittsburg, working as subcontractors of LaForge and Budd Construction Company, Parsons, resumed asphalt work on South Main Street (Hwy. 69)beginning just south of 23rd Street and ending just north of the South National Avenue.
Crews performed grinding work to the asphalt surface, to smooth it out, according to Peter Kemmeter, an estimator with Heckert Construction today.
The corrective construction work should end today, Kemmeter said.
Finishing touches will be painting stripes on the asphalt by a four-man-crew which should be completed by 5 p.m., he said.
