Resurfacing project underway in Ford County

The Kansas Department of Transportation has started a resurfacing project along U.S. Highway 50 from east of Spearville to the Edwards/Ford County line, reducing traffic to one lane through the project area.

Motorists should be aware of delays of up to 15 minutes as flaggers and a pilot car direct one-lane traffic through the work zone. Signs and cones will mark the lane reduction. U.S. 50 will be open to normal traffic when construction is not taking place.

Venture Corporation, from Great Bend, is the contractor on this $1.7 million project, which is expected to be completed by June, weather permitting.
