Resurfacing Work Set for K-18 in Rooks County

Road Work AheadThe Kansas Department of Transportation expects to begin work the week of March 13 on a project to resurface a portion of Kansas Highway 18 in Rooks County. The project will cover a 15-mile stretch of road from the US Highway 183 junction to the Rooks/Osborne County line.

Project work includes a 3 1/2-inch mill, followed by application of a 3-inch inlay and 1 1/2-inch overlay of new asphalt material to improve roadway conditions and extend pavement life.

Traffic in the construction zone will be reduced to one lane and controlled by flaggers and a pilot car operation during daylight hours. Minor delays, not exceeding 15 minutes, should be expected.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs and "Give 'em a Brake!" when approaching and driving through work zones.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of May, weather permitting.

Venture Corporation of Great Bend is the primary contractor on the project, with a total contract cost of approximately $4 million.

The project is funded by T-WORKS. Find out more about this and other T-WORKS projects at http://tworks.ksdot.org.

For more information on this project, contact KDOT area construction engineer Jim Riener at 785-543-2163 or [email protected]
