K-9 resurface to start Monday; delays expected

(KAIR)--Resurfacing work on a stretch of highway, from Jackson County to Atchison County, is set to start Monday, if weather allows.

According to a release from the Kansas Department of Transportation, the 12-mile resurfacing of K-9 Highway extends from U.S. Highway 75, in Jackson County, to U.S. 159, in Atchison County, with work to take place Monday through Saturday during daylight hours.

Motorists are alerted to expect delays of up to 15-minutes, as traffic will be reduced to one lane in the active work zone, and directed by a pilot car and flaggers.

Dustrol Inc., of Towanda, is the prime contractor on the $1.7 million project.

Work is expected to be complete in July.

Motorists, along with being alerted to the delays, are also reminded to slow down, be alert, and obey warning signs, when approaching and driving through a work zone.
