A new asphalt paving project is expected to get underway Monday in south central Kansas.
The Kansas Department of Transportation will begin work on K-42 in Sedgwick and Sumner counties. The project will begin at the junction with K-2 highway, located west of Suppesville, and continue 8.7 miles east to the junction with K-49 highway, near Viola.
Traffic through this work zone will be controlled by flagmen and pilot car. Drivers should expect delays up to 15 minutes. The work zone area will move daily and work will be underway during daylight hours only. There will be a 12 foot width restriction in the work zone.
The $1.9 million project is scheduled to be complete in October. The project is funded by T-WORKS, the transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature in May 2010.
