The Kansas Department of Transportation will run pavement strength tests on highway sections in Clark, Finney, Ford and Gray counties Monday through Thursday. Sections tested will include the following:
• K-23, from the K-156 junction in Finney County south through Gray County;
• U.S. 56, from Ensign east to Dodge City;
• U.S. 283, from U.S. 50 north to Jetmore;
• U.S. 283, from Dodge City south to the Clark County line;
• K-94, from U.S. 54 south to Clark State Fishing Lake;
• K-34 from the Clark County line south to U.S. 160.
The testing crew will use a falling weight deflectometer to determine pavement strength on each section of highway. Traffic will be reduced to one lane guided by a pilot car through the test zone. Travelers can expect delays of 15 minutes or less during daylight hours. KDOT reminds all drivers to use caution and obey signs and flaggers in test zones.
