Roadwork to Begin in Ellis County

Road Work AheadA project to resurface 16 miles of Interstate 70 from Hays to the Russell County line is scheduled to begin the week of August 25, weather permitting.

The project will consist of a two-inch mill and a one half-inch overlay.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zone causing minimal delays.

The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and "Give 'Em a Brake!" when approaching and driving through the construction zone.

KDOT awarded the construction contract - totaling $3.8 million - to Venture Corporation.

This project should be completed by late September, weather permitting.

This project is funded by T-WORKS, the transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature in May 2010. Find out more about this and other T-WORKS projects at: http://kdotapp.ksdot.org/TWorks/.
