The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) expects to begin a concrete pavement rehabilitation project at the intersection of U.S. 69 and 20th Street in Pittsburg the week of April 6, weather permitting.
U.S. 69 traffic will be maintained through the work zone. 20th Street will be closed to traffic at the intersection, with a posted detour on local streets.
KDOT awarded the $1.3 million construction contract to Koss Construction of Topeka. The project should be completed by late summer, weather permitting.
Drivers are reminded to slow down and proceed with caution through the work zone. Persons with questions may contact Bob Gudgen, (620) 308-7621, or Priscilla Petersen, (620) 902-6433.
