On Friday, a road construction project to repave a section of Kansas Highway 383 in Norton County is expected to begin.

The project begins at the Decatur/Norton county line and continues northeast to the U.S. Highway 36 junction. The scope includes placing an ultra-thin bonded asphalt surfacing along 13.5 miles of the roadway.

Flaggers and a pilot car operation will guide one-lane traffic through the work zone during daylight hours. Delays of 15 minutes or less should be expected. Weather permitting, work should be complete by early September.

For details, call (785) 543-2163 or (785) 877-3315.
