POSTED ON BEHALF OF THE KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
Concrete patching on U.S. 169 over next two weeks
Starting Friday, Oct. 25, and continuing intermittently over the next two weeks, Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) maintenance crews will replace sections of deteriorated concrete pavement on U.S.169 between the community of Earlton and the 35th Street exit at Chanute.
An automatic flagger device will be used to control one-lane traffic at the work zone. Motorists should expect brief delays during weekday daylight hours.
Joe Engle, maintenance supervisor at the Pittsburg KDOT office, reminds drivers to slow down, obey the signs and flaggers, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” Persons with questions about the concrete patching may contact Engle, (620) 231-7560, or KDOT Southeast District Public Affairs Manager Priscilla Petersen at 1-877-550-5368.
