East Wichita Ave. Resurfacing Project Resumes

Road Work AheadRecent rains both locally and across the state have delayed a road resurfacing project for East Wichita Ave. in Russell, but according to city officials, milling and overlay work began again Friday.

Work crews began the project in late July. Weather permitting, Russell City Manager Jon Quinday says the project is scheduled to be completed by August 23.

According to Russell Public Works Director Arlyn Unrein, the project will cost between $500,000 and $600,000 with $200,000 of it being paid for through a KDOT grant.
