US-50 overlay project begins Monday
Drivers who take US-50 to Newton will find the going slower beginning Monday when contractors start work on two mill and overlay projects stretching from the Marion/Harvey County line to I-135.
A 1½-inch overlay will be laid from the county line to Walton, and a 3-inch overlay will be placed from Walton to the I-135 junction.
Travel will be restricted to one 17-foot lane, with pilot cars used to conduct traffic through construction zones. Bridge approaches will be controlled by traffic signals.
Workers will begin patching concrete pavement Monday, which will take about two weeks. Additional concrete pavement work will be done on Doyle Creek bridge, about 2½ miles west of the county line.
KDOT confirmed that there will be times the projects will be worked on simultaneously.
