The Kansas Department of Transportation will begin an asphalt construction project on the surface of K-14 Highway, from the north city limits of Lyons continuing north to the junction with K-4 highway, located approximately 11 miles north of Lyons.
This project is scheduled to start on Monday and will involve a work zone that will move daily.
Traffic through this work zone will be controlled by flaggers and pilot car, so drivers can expect delays of up to 15 minutes. Work will be underway during daylight hours only.
There will be a 12 foot width restriction in the work zone, so vehicles with widths wider than 12 feet will need to use an alternate route. Highway construction project locations and road condition information can be viewed at the http://511.ksdot.org website.
This highway construction project is scheduled to be completed by the end of August, depending on delays due to weather conditions.
Venture Corporation from Great Bend is the prime contractor for this $1,918,018.25 project, which is funded by T-WORKS, the transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature in May 2010. For more information about T-WORKS projects and funding visit the website, www.ksdot.org/tworks.
KDOT urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” when approaching and driving through a highway work zone. Persons with questions about the road work or other KDOT projects can call South Central Kansas Public Affairs Manager, Martin Miller at 620-663-3361 or 1-877-550-5368 (Toll free).
