U.S. 56 overlay and milling work begins in Osage County

OSAGE COUNTY, Kan. – Overlay and milling work began today, June 14, 2021, on U.S. Highway 56 in Osage County, Kan. The work will cover approximately 27 miles, from the junction of U.S. 56 and state Highway 31 in Burlingame to the Osage-Douglas county line.

The Kansas Department of Transportation reports work will alternate between the left and right lanes throughout the project. 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 and add extra time in their travel schedules.

Work will take place Monday through Saturday, beginning 30 minutes after sunrise until 30 minutes before sunset. The project is expected to be completed by late July, weather permitting.

Hamm Inc., of Perry, Kan., is the contractor on the $4.2 million project.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through highway work zones. For more information about Kansas road construction projects, see www.kandrive.org or call 5-1-1.
