On Monday, weather permitting, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) expects to begin a surface recycle/chip seal project on 23 miles of U.S. 59 in Allen and Anderson counties. The road work starts at the U.S. 54/U.S. 59 junction and continues north and west to the south junction of U.S. 169/U.S. 59.

The highway will receive a 1½-inch surface recycle, to be followed by a chip seal this summer. Flaggers and a pilot car will direct one-lane traffic through the work zone during daylight hours; expect delays of 15 minutes or less. The road work should be completed in one month, weather permitting.

Dustrol, Inc., of Towanda is contractor on the $1.7 million project. Drivers are reminded to watch for the signs and flaggers, and to “Give ‘Em a Brake!” at the work zone. Persons with questions may contact KDOT Construction Engineer Troy Howard at (785) 448-5446 or Public Affairs Manager Priscilla Petersen at (620) 902-6433.
