K-31 resurfacing to begin west of Burlingame

-

On Tuesday, Sept. 3, a resurfacing project will begin on a 19.7-mile stretch of K-31 from the K-99 intersection in Wabaunsee County to the Dacotah Street intersection in Burlingame. Project work includes a chip seal application over all existing mainline lanes followed by all new pavement markings. The resurfacing project will smooth the road and fill surface defects that can shorten pavement life. Work will take place during daylight hours, Monday through Friday, with some occasional Saturday work.
Beginning on Tuesday, weather permitting, eastbound and westbound K-31 will be reduced to one lane at several mile increments at a time throughout the project duration. Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via channelizers and flaggers. Traffic will be reduced to one lane for both directions along with intermittent closures of adjacent cross roads during the project work hours. Drivers should expect delays of up to 15 minutes maximum and are encouraged to use alternate routes, if possible. There will be a 12-foot lane width restriction through the project work zone throughout the project duration.

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, Kansas City, Mo., is the primary contractor on this resurfacing project with a total contract cost of $393,409. The scheduled completion date for the resurfacing project is late September 2013, weather permitting.
