Venture Corporation will be working on 24th Street between McKinley and Harrison Streets starting through Wednesday, Oct. 13. Expect to see lane closures, traffic diversions, rough roads without lane lines, and increased dust during construction.
Those who live in the area need to be aware that access to driveways along 24th Street should be available during non-work hours, but may be intermittently blocked during work hours depending upon the location of the milling equipment. It is suggested that residents along the project corridor park on their driveways instead of on the street to expedite the construction progress. Door hangers will be distributed to residents instructing them further.
Individuals that use 24th Street but do not live there are asked to choose an alternate route during construction. This street construction is associated with the City of Great Bend’s 2010 Mill and Overlay project and paid for through the ½ cent sales tax and grant funds. Questions related to this project may be directed to the Great Bend City Engineer, Robert Winiecke at 620-793-4111.
