With a chance of rain and snow here early in the week, the start of the resurfacing project from the U.S. 77/K-233 Junction east to the city limits of Oketo may be put on hold, but was scheduled to begin this week. Work to be done includes a 2 inch asphalt overlay and the addition of 3-foot rock edge wedge shoulders. Drivers should expect 10-15 minute delays as traffic will be taken through the work zone via a pilot car. Drivers are urged to take an alternate route, if possible. There will be a 10 foot wide width restriction during project work hours only. Overall work is scheduled to be finished by early June 2013, weather permitting. Hall Brothers of Marysville are the primary contractors of this project, which cost just over $468,000, which was funded by T-WORKS, the transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature in May 2010.
