Resurfacing on U.S. 166 east of Chetopa to start in late June

Updated:
CHETOPA, KANSAS -

Late in the week of June 20-24 the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) expects to begin a resurfacing project on U.S. 166. The road work starts at the Labette-Cherokee county line east of Chetopa and continues east for 18 miles to the west city limits of Baxter Springs.

The roadway will be milled at bridge approaches and tie-ins, followed by the application of a ¾-inch asphalt overlay. Flaggers and a pilot car operation will direct one-lane traffic through the work zone during daylight hours on weekdays and occasionally on Saturdays. Expect delays of 15 minutes or less. ‘Wait for pilot car’ signs will be posted for side road traffic. The road work should be completed by early August, weather permitting.

KDOT awarded Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc., of Kansas City, Mo., the $1,037,943 construction contract. Darrin Petrowsky, area engineer at the KDOT Independence office, reminds drivers to obey the signs and flaggers and use extra caution in the work zone. Persons with questions concerning the project may contact Petrowsky at (620) 331-3760 or Priscilla Petersen at 1-877-550-5368. This preservation project is funded under the T-WORKS transportation program. For additional information concerning T-WORKS visit the website, www.ksdot.org/tworks.
