KDOT notifies U.S. 75 travelers of upcoming project, Osage County line to Burlington

In late May or early June the Kansas Department of Transportation expects to begin a 17-mile mill and resurfacing project on U.S. 75 from the Osage-Coffey county line to Burlington. The project includes work on U.S. 75 inside the city of Burlington.

The contractor, Chester Bross Construction, Hannibal, Mo., will first replace the concrete pavement at the intersection of U.S. 75 and Neosho Street. At that location traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zone with a temporary traffic signal. North of Hudson Street in Burlington, traffic will be reduced to one lane while the roadway is milled and resurfaced.

The contractor will complete work in Burlington before continuing north on U.S. 75. Flaggers and a pilot car will direct one-lane traffic through the work zone between Burlington and the Coffey-Osage county line. Traveler delays of 15 minutes or less can be expected during daylight hours, with a driving lane with restriction of 11 feet.

KDOT will provide additional details about the U.S. 75 project closer to the starting date. For more information, contact Donna Schmit at the KDOT Garnett office, 785-448-5446, or Priscilla Petersen at the KDOT District 4 office at Chanute, 877-550-5368.
