on U.S. 75 highway
On April 11, a concrete pavement repair project began on U.S.
Highway 75 from 10th Street, Lyndon, north to the junction of
state highways 31 and 268, in Osage County. Crews will first remove
the damaged areas of concrete and then fill in the patched areas
with new concrete pavement. New pavement markings will be applied
to the repaired areas.
Both northbound and southbound U.S. 75 will have varying lane
reductions. Traffic will be carried through the work zone via
a pilot car and flagger operation with delays of up to 15 minutes.
Work will generally occur during daylight hours; however, due
to curing requirements for the concrete patching material, lane
closures will likely extend into the evening hours each day. There
will be a lane width restriction of 14 feet throughout the project
Winding Road Construction, Inc. is the primary contractor on the
$193,000 pavement repair project. The scheduled completion date
is early June.
