A resurfacing project in Neosho and Crawford Counties starts this week.
According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, the project on K-47 will include an 18-mile stretch that runs between the west city limits of St. Paul and the west city limits of Girard. Project activity includes a pavement surface recycle and asphalt overlay. The contractor plans to begin at Girard and work west to St. Paul, and then turn and work east toward Girard. Flaggers and a pilot car will direct one-lane traffic through the work zone during daylight hours. Drivers can expect delays of 15 minutes or less. KDOT awarded Bettis Asphalt & Construction of Topeka the construction contracts totaling $5.3 million. The work should be completed by mid-November, weather permitting.
