K-23 pavement replacement project to begin
On March 17, a pavement replacement project will begin on a 19-mile stretch of Kansas Highway 23 from U.S. Highway 24 in Hoxie to the U.S. Highway 83/Kansas Highway 383 junction near Selden. The scope of the project is to remove the existing pavement, stabilize the base of the roadway and construct a new wider pavement.
The roadway will be closed, and traffic will be detoured onto U.S 24 and U.S 83 for the duration of the project.
Venture Corp. of Great Bend is the primary contractor for the project, with a total contract cost of $14.5 million.
The scheduled completion date to open the roadway to traffic is Sept. 19.
