U.S. 54 resurfaced between Yates Center and Iola


The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has started a project to resurface U.S. 54 between Yates Center and Iola.


The contractor is working east from Yates Center. 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 should be finished in about two months.


Shilling Construction of Manhattan is primary contractor on the $2.3 million project. Persons with questions may contact KDOT Area Engineer Troy Howard at (620) 901-6557 or Public Affairs Manager Priscilla Petersen, (620) 902-6433.
