LARNED — A field survey for a proposed U.S. 56 bridge replacement over the Pawnee River in Larned is scheduled to start around April 5. The project location is about half a mile southwest of the U.S. 56/K-19 junction. 

The approximate length of the survey will be about 1,500 feet, and the survey will be based on the existing alignment. 

The field survey, estimated to be completed by April 30, will gather information needed for the detailed design of the proposed bridge replacement. 

A member of the survey crew 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.

Mike Selley, P.S., survey project manager with the Kansas Department of Transportation, will be in charge of this survey for KDOT.
