Posted August 15, 2013 - NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION:

U.S. 160 resurfacing project begins August 20

Tuesday, Aug. 20, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) expects to begin a project that will resurface a 20-mile section of U.S.160 in Cherokee County.  The project starts at the south U.S.69/U.S.400 junction at Crestline and continues west to end at the Cherokee-Labette county line.

During the first phase the contractor will place a ¾-inch asphalt overlay on U.S.160 from Columbus west to the Cherokee/Labette county line. The second phase, from Crestline west to the U.S.160/U.S.69 junction at Columbus, consists of milling 1 inch off the existing roadway surface and applying a 1½- inch asphalt overlay. Traffic at the work zone will be reduced to one lane controlled by flaggers and a pilot car during daylight hours. Motorists should expect delays of 15 minutes or less. The entire project should be finished by mid-October, weather permitting.

KDOT awarded the construction contract of approximately $2 million to APAC Missouri, Inc., of Springfield. Bob Gudgen, construction engineer at the Pittsburg KDOT office, reminds drivers to obey the flaggers, reduce speed, and "Give ‘Em a Brake!" at the work zone.

The preservation project is funded under the T-WORKS transportation program. Those with questions concerning the road work may contact Gudgen at (620) 231-7560, or KDOT Southeast District Public Affairs Manager Priscilla Petersen, 1-877-550-5368.
