Motorists in two Southeast Kansas counties will need to give themselves extra time as the Kansas Department of Transportation expects to begin two projects next Thursday to resurface K-99 in Elk and Greenwood counties.
The mill and overlay project area starts at the east junction of U.S. 160 and continues north to U.S. 400.
Flaggers and a pilot car will direct one-lane traffic through the work zone during daylight hours; expect delays of 15 minutes or less. The resurfacing work should be finished in one month, weather permitting.
Cornejo & Sons of Wichita, is the contractor on the projects, which have a combined construction cost of $1.9 million.
