This week, the Kansas Department of Transportation will begin work on a mill and overlay project along K-27 in Wallace County.

Project work includes a 2 1/2-inch mill and inlay followed by a 1 1/2-inch overlay beginning at the Sherman County line and moving south to the Greeley County line. Traffic will be reduced to one lane and controlled by flaggers and a pilot car during daylight hours. Minor delays not exceeding 15 minutes should be anticipated. Work is expected to be complete by end of October.

Shilling Construction of Manhattan is the primary contractor for the project with a total contract cost of $4.5 million. For more information, contact district construction engineer Rob Percival at 785-877-3315 or
