NEWS RELEASE FROM THE KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
KDOT begins field survey on U.S.169 in Allen County
The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has begun a field survey for a proposed pavement reconstruction project on U.S.169 in Allen County. The survey area is on the existing U.S.169 alignment. The survey starts at the Neosho-Allen county line and continues north for approximately 15 miles, ending just south of the U.S.169/U.S.54 junction.
This survey started in late March and is expected to take 24 weeks, weather permitting. Surveyors will gather information necessary for the detailed design of the proposed improvement. Activities will include the use of survey instruments on the ground to determine locations of existing features within the corridor. A member of the survey crew will first contact property owners and/or tenants for permission to enter private property. Andrew J. Riddle, L.S., with the consultant firm of GBA, will be in charge of this survey for KDOT.
The proposed U.S.169 project has not been funded for construction.
