Road maintenance work is scheduled to begin as early as Tuesday on Kansas Highway 95 in Scott County.

The work will include a hot-in-place recycle, followed by chip seal beginning at the south intersection of U.S. Highway 83 and K-95 and continuing 6.5 miles to the north intersection of U.S. 83 and K-95. 

Traffic will be reduced to one-lane, with traffic guided by a pilot car during the project, with an expected delay of 15 minutes or less. The Kansas Department of Transportation urges drivers to be alert, pay attention to work zone warning signs, slow down when approaching work zones and be prepared to stop.

Dustrol Inc. of Towanda is the primary contractor on the project, with an approximate construction cost of $374,000. The project is expected to be completed by late August, weather permitting.
