Resurfacing 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 duration.

Winding Road Construction, Inc. is the primary contractor on the $193,000 pavement repair project. The scheduled completion date is early June.
