The Kansas Department of Transportation is conducting pavement evaluation tests this week in Cheyenne County on the following routes:

* Kansas Highway 27 Highway from the Sherman County line to the Nebraska state line.

* U.S. Highway 36 from the Colorado state line to the Rawlins County line.

This operation includes the use of a pilot car operation to control traffic.

The surveys test the quality of pavement and certain aspects of deflection upon the roadway. KDOT technicians will be working during daylight hours in 4-mile segments. A minimal wait of 15 minutes or less is possible for motorists.
