Work to begin on Graham Co. bridge
HILL CITY -- Beginning Monday, a bridge repair project will begin along U.S. Highway 283 north of Hill City.
Approximately 11 miles north of Hill City, the bridge located over Bow Creek will receive deck patching, girder repairs and a silica fume overlay of the bridge deck.
Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction, controlled by temporary traffic signals. Delays should not exceed 5 minutes, but the public should plan their travels accordingly. The speed limit will be reduced through the construction zone.
KDOT awarded the construction contract -- totaling $189,092 -- to PCI Roads LLC of Saint Michael, Minn.
The only subcontractor on the job is Highway Signing Inc. of Omaha, Neb., providing the traffic control.
Weather permitting, the construction project will be completed by late September.
