The Kansas Department of Transportation has announced a pair of highway resurfacing projects set to begin next week.

Crews are expected to begin a resurfacing project on K-25 in Wichita County on Wednesday, July 8, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation. This mill and overlay begins north of I Street in Leoti and continues north to the Wichita/Logan county line.

This mill and overlay project begins north of the U.S. 160 junction in Stanton County and continues north to the U.S. 50/K27 intersection in Hamilton County.
