Highway sign replacement to begin soon

On Tuesday, January 22, a highway signing replacement project will begin covering U.S. 36 in Doniphan, Brown, Nemaha, and Marshall Counties, K-87 and K-178 in Nemaha County, and K-120 in Doniphan County. Project work includes the removal and replacement of various highway signing. Work will take place during daylight hours, Monday through Friday, with some occasional Saturday work.

The majority of the project work will take place beyond the shoulders on the right of way along the highways. There may be some occasional lane and shoulder closures. Traffic will be directed via temporary road work signs posted in the work area that will be removed at the end of each work day 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.

Fulsom Brothers, Inc. (Cedar Vale, KS) is the primary contractor on this $578,663 signing project. Project work is scheduled to be completed in late May 2013, weather permitting.

This project is funded by T-WORKS, the transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature in May 2010. Find out more about this and other T-WORKS projects at: http://kdotapp.ksdot.org/TWorks/.
