Beginning Friday, September 1, the Kansas Department of Transportation will begin resurfacing about 11 miles on U.S. 36 and K-112 in Jewell County.
Work on U.S. 36 will begin at the Smith/Jewell County line and continue east for about 8.5 miles to the West K-128/U.S. 36 junction. Work on K-112 will begin at the K-112/U.S. 36 junction and continue north about 2.5 miles to the south city limits of Esbon.
Flaggers and a pilot car will direct traffic through the construction zone. Drivers should be prepared for a delay of up to 15 minutes and plan extra time in their travel schedules.
APAC-Kansas Inc. of Hutchinson is the prime contractor and has scheduled this $644,457 project to be completed in mid-October, weather permitting.
