KDOT will begin work on eastbound and westbound lanes of US-56 today, Monday, September 19th. Traffic will be reduced to one lane between the US-59 junction to the Douglas/Osage County line for chip seal overlay application. Crews will be working during daylight hours, Monday through Friday.
Traffic will be directed through the work zone using flaggers and a pilot car operation. KDOT advises drivers to expect delays of up to 15 minutes. A news release from KDOT states that "when drivers enter the project work zone on US-56 from adjacent roadways, they must not enter onto either highway until they are directed by the flaggers/pilot car."
Reduced speed limits will be in place and a 12-foot lane width restriction throughout the project work zone will also be enforced during the daylight working hours.
The chip seal overlay application project is scheduled to be completed by Friday, September 23, weather permitting.
