K-68 resurfacing set for next week

LYNDON—A resurfacing project on K-68 from the U.S. 75 junction east and north to the K-268 junction is scheduled to begin Tuesday, July 7, and continue through Friday, July 11.

K-68 will be reduced to one open lane in several mile increments at a time for chip seal work daily during daylight hours, weather permitting, in Osage County. Project work includes chip seal work through the city of Quenemo.

Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via a flagger and pilot car operation. Drivers can expect delays of up to 15 minutes and should allow extra time for their daily commutes during the project work hours.

There will be an 11-foot lane width restriction and the speed limit will be reduced from the posted speed limit by 10 mph through the work zone during the daylight work hours throughout the duration of the project. No large structures or superloads will be allowed through the project work zone.

The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” when approaching and driving through the project work zone.

Vance Brothers Inc., Kansas City, Mo., is the primary contractor on this resurfacing project with a total contract cost of $286,993. (KDOT Project #68-70 KA-3737-01)
