The contractor, J & R Sand Co., Inc., of Liberal, plans to begin patching sections of U.S. 160 in Haskell County on Wednesday and then begin the mill and overlay operation in Grant County on Friday.

During construction, traffic will be limited to one lane through the work zone, guided by a pilot car. Drivers can expect delays of 15 minutes or less.

Work on the $3.5 million T-WORKS preservation project is expected to be completed by the end of July, depending on weather.
