Crews are expected to begin some road projects in the area early next week.

A mill and overlay project on U.S. Highway 83 in Scott County is set to begin Monday. The project will start where the concrete pavement ends north of Scott City and continue north 14.9 miles to the Scott/Logan county line. APAC Shears of Hutchinson is the contractor on the $1.6 million project.  

On Tuesday, crews are expected to begin a mill and inlay project on U.S. Highway 50 from Campus Drive to Towns Road in Garden City. Venture Corp. of Great Bend is the contractor on the $1.1 million project. 

Both projects are scheduled to be completed in August, weather permitting. Highway traffic will be controlled by flaggers and a pilot car when necessary.
