U.S. 160 resurfacing project starts next week in Crawford County


The week of May 18, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) expects to begin a mill and overlay on U.S. 160 in Crawford County, weather permitting.


Work will start at the north U.S. 160/U.S. 69 junction and continue east to the Kansas-Missouri state line.


Flaggers and a pilot car will direct one-lane traffic through the work zone during daylight hours; expect delays of 15 minutes or less. The resurfacing project should be finished in a week, weather permitting.


KDOT awarded the $819,481 construction contract to Bettis Asphalt & Construction, Inc., of Topeka.


Drivers are reminded to obey the signs and flaggers, and to slow down in the work zone. Persons with questions may contact Bob Gudgen, (620) 308-7621, or Priscilla Petersen, (620) 902-6433.
