A $6.28 million resurfacing project is expected to begin around Oct. 10 on parts of K-156 and U.S. 183 in Pawnee County.

The Kansas Department of Transportation project involves a mill and hot-mix-asphalt overlay at various locations on K-156 from the Hodgeman/Pawnee county line to the west city limits of Larned. The overall project will start on K-156 at the Hodgeman/Pawnee county line.

The project will also involve K-264 in Larned from Larned State Hospital to the K-156 junction. And the work will also involve U.S. 183 from K-156 to the Pawnee/Rush county line. The full length of the project is about 37 miles.

The work is expected to be completed around the end of November.

During the project, traffic will be reduced to one lane and controlled by flaggers and a pilot car, so motorists should be prepared to slow down and stop for the work zone. Motorists should expect delays of up to 15 minutes.

Venture Corp. of Great Bend is the primary contractor for the $6,285,352 project.
