Work on U.S. 75 through Lyndon to begin July 5

LYNDON, Kan. – A milling and overlay project on U.S. Highway 75 in Osage County is scheduled to begin Tuesday, July 5, weather permitting. The project will cover approximately three miles, from state Highway 68, through Lyndon, to the south end of the state Highway 31 roundabout.

Kansas Department of Transportation reports traffic will be restricted to one lane in the work zone and will be directed by a pilot car, flaggers, signs, and cones. Drivers should plan for delays of up to 15 minutes.

Work will occur Monday through Friday during daylight hours. The project is expected to be completed by mid-August.

Killough Construction Inc., of Ottawa, Kan., is the contractor on the $1.4 million project.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey warning signs when approaching and driving through a highway work zone. For more information about road construction projects across Kansas, see or call 511.

    Commuters are seriously inconvenienced by the closing of hwy 31, an unnecessary project by all accounts, and the genius in charge of road construction decides this would be a good time to start an overlay project along the detour. This is a perfect example of government ineptitude and their disdain for we the people. Shameful.
