Roadwork to begin in Phillips/Smith counties
Special to The Hays Daily News
On Wednesday, a resurfacing project will begin on a 29-mile stretch of Kansas Highway 9 from U.S. Highway 183 to U.S. Highway 281.
The scope of the project is to mill the existing pavement and overlay with 1.5 inches of new asphalt.
APAC Kansas Inc. of Hays is the primary contractor for the project, with a contract cost of $2.2 million.
The project is expected to be complete by late May.
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.
This project is funded by TWORKS, the transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature in May 2010.
