KDOT: Survey work could delay traffic in Bourbon County



The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will be conducting pavement surveys along several highways in Bourbon County from Monday through Thursday, July 22-25, weather permitting:

  • K-3, from the Linn-Bourbon county line south to the Bourbon-Crawford county line;
  • K-65, entire route;
  • K-31, from the Linn-Bourbon county line to the U.S. 69 junction;
  • K-7, from the east K-31 junction to the U.S. 54 junction.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane and controlled by a pilot car through the survey area. Motorists should expect delays of up to 10-15 minutes. KDOT encourages motorists to allow extra time in their travel schedule or use an alternate route.

They survey work is necessary to determine the strength of the pavement and roadbed.  While the surface conditions can be measured and visualized, it is necessary to also determine if the pavement is strong and sound underneath the surface. Surveys are being conducted throughout the state on numerous highways from June to November.
