K-7, K-31 chip seal work starts this week



The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) plans to begin resurfacing on sections of K-7 and K-31 in Bourbon County this Thursday, July 28.


KDOT will place a chip seal on the following sections:


  • K-7, from the east K-31 junction north to the Bourbon-Linn County line.
  • K-7, from the U.S. 54 junction north to the east K-31 junction.
  • K-31, from the east K-7 junction east to the junction with U.S. 69 (see map).

Flaggers and a pilot car will guide one-lane traffic through the work zone during daylight hours. Expect delays of 15 minutes or less. Weather permitting, the road work will be finished by mid-August. Vance Brothers Inc. of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is contractor on the project, which has a construction cost of $550,000.
