K-192 resurfacing under way in county
A resurfacing project began June 13 on a 17-mile stretch K-192 from the K-192/US-59 junction in Jefferson County moving east to the K-192/US-73 junction in Leavenworth County.
Overall project work includes the milling away of one inch of existing pavement followed by the application of a two-inch overlay of new asphalt, along with new pavement markings on the resurfaced stretch of K-192.
Work will take place during daylight hours, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday.
Eastbound and westbound K-192 was reduced to one lane in both directions along with intermittent closures of adjacent cross roads during the project work hours for resurfacing work. Traffic is being directed through the project work zone via a pilot car and flagger operation. There will be a posted speed limit of 40 mph and a 12-foot lane width restriction through the project work zone during working hours. Drivers should expect delays of up to 15 minutes maximum and are encouraged to use alternate routes, if possible.
Herzog Contracting Corporation, St. Joseph, Mo., is the primary contractor on this resurfacing project with a total contract cost of $1.8 million. The scheduled completion date for the entire project is late July, weather permitting.
This project is funded by T-WORKS, the transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature in May 2010.
