A project to resurface approximately 16 miles of U.S. 40 in Wallace County was expected to start this week, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.
Work will consist of a 1-inch mill and 2-inch overlay beginning at the east city limits in Sharon Springs and ending at the Logan County line. Traffic will be directed through the work zone by flaggers and a pilot car during daylight hours, and minor delays should be expected.
KDOT anticipates work to be completed by mid-October, weather permitting.
Venture Corporation of Great Bend is the primary contractor for the $2.1 million project.
