A survey for a proposed bridge replacement on U.S. 83 Business south of Garden City in Finney County is expected to begin Monday, Sept. 21, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.

The area to be surveyed includes the U.S. 83 Business/south Main bridge over the Arkansas River.  The length of the survey is 1,600 feet.

A member of the survey crew will first contact property owners and/or tenants for permission to enter private property. Survey activities will include the use of survey instruments on the ground to determine locations of existing features within the survey corridor.

The survey is expected to be completed by Oct. 19.

Mike Selley, Survey Project Manager, will lead this survey for KDOT.
