K-4, part of U.S. 281 to be resurfaced in Barton County

A $6.43 million resurfacing project will start soon on K-4 and part of U.S. 281 in Barton County.

The Kansas Department of Transportation project involves a mill and hot-mix-asphalt overlay on K-4 from the Rush/Barton county line on the west to the Rice County line on the east. The project will also involve a section of U.S. 281 that connects with K-4 in the middle of the county around Hoisington.

The project is expected to begin around June 27 and be completed around mid-August.

During the work, 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 $6,430,184 project.
