Chip seal work on three highways in Osage County will begin on Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019, weather permitting, the Kansas Department of Transportation has announced.

Work will start on a one-mile stretch of state Highway 276 from Olivet to the ramps on U.S. Highway 75, and on a stretch of state Highway 278 from U.S. 75 west three miles. Then work will take place on U.S. 75 from just south of K-278 and extend north five miles to the state Highway 68 junction.

Traffic will be controlled by a pilot car operation on each of these project areas as work progresses. Motorists should expect delays of up to 15 minutes and add extra time to their travel schedules.

The work on the three highways is expected to be completed by Wednesday, Aug. 21, weather permitting.

KDOT asks all motorists to use extra caution in the work zone areas.
