The Kansas Department of Transportation expects on Wednesday to begin a resurfacing project on U.S. 400 east of Parsons.
The project includes a mill and overlay on the driving lanes and placing a chip seal on the shoulders.
One section of U.S. 400 to be resurfaced starts 895 feet east of Trego Road and continues east for 1,273 feet. The other begins 1,036 feet east of Victory Road and continues east for 2.8 miles to York Road.
The contractor plans to start at the west end of the project. Flaggers and a pilot car will direct one-lane traffic through the project area during daylight hours. Drivers should expect delays of 15 minutes or less. The resurfacing work should be completed in two weeks, weather permitting.
KDOT awarded the $544,280 construction contract to Heckert Construction of Pittsburg.
Drivers are reminded to obey the signs and flaggers, and to slow down in the work zone. Persons with questions may contact Kyler Farmer, 620-308-7617, or Priscilla Petersen, 620-902-6433.
