K-4 bridge field survey to begin in Rice County

A field survey for a proposed bridge replacement on K-4 in northwestern Rice County is set to begin around Thursday, July 8.

The survey will be for a bridge replacement over Plum Creek, 6.26 miles east of the Barton County line. The approximate length of the survey is 3,000 feet. The survey will be based on existing alignment.

The field survey, estimated to be completed by Sept. 14, will gather information for detailed design of the proposed improvement.

A member of the survey crew first will contact property owners and/or tenants for permission to enter private property. Survey activities will include the use of survey instruments on the ground to determine locations of existing features within the survey corridor.

Jim Nider, P.S., Survey Project Manager, SMH Consultants, will be in charge of this survey for the Kansas Department of Transportation.
