The Kansas Department of Transportation will run pavement strength tests on highway sections in Haskell and Grant counties from Tuesday to July 13, which are expected to cause approximately 15-minute delays on affected areas during daylight hours.

Crews will use a falling weight deflectometer to determine pavement strength on U.S. 160 and K-190 in Haskell and Grant counties and K-25 in Grant County. During testing, traffic will be reduced to one lane guided by a pilot car. KDOT urges drivers to use caution and obey signs and flaggers in test zones.

For more information, contact Lisa Knoll, KDOT District 6 public affairs manager, at (620) 765-7080. Information on all Kansas road construction projects can be seen at or by calling 511.
