Overlay projects to begin on U.S. 75 in Shawnee and Osage counties

The Kansas Department of Transportation announced two overlay projects on U.S. Highway 75 are scheduled to begin in Shawnee and Osage counties on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, weather permitting.

KDOT reported approximately 16 miles of southbound U.S. 75 will be restricted to one lane from Southwest 42nd Street in Topeka to just south of the U.S. 75/U.S. 56 intersection in Osage county.

Approximately 9 miles of northbound U.S. 75 will also be restricted to one lane from Southwest Topeka Boulevard to just south of the U.S. 75/U.S. 56 intersection in Osage county.

All on and off ramps on both routes are included in the projects. Ramp closures will be one day or less, and information will be posted on message boards three days in advance.

Traffic on either route will be directed through the work zone by a pilot car, flaggers, signs and cones. Drivers should plan for possible delays of up to 15 minutes.

Work will take place during light hours Monday through Saturday. Both projects are expected to be complete by November.

Hamm Inc., Perry, Kan., is the contractor on the combined $6.6 million dollar projects.

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