Local Highway 69 resurfacing to start next week
PITTSBURG, Kan. — The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) announced Tuesday that it expects to begin a resurfacing project Monday, Aug. 2, on U.S. 69 and U.S. 69B in Crawford County.
Project activity includes a mill and overlay on U.S. 69 between U.S. 400 and K-47, excluding the section within the Pittsburg city limits, according to a KDOT press release. U.S. 69B is being resurfaced through Franklin and Arma.
Work will start on U.S. 69B and then proceed south on U.S. 69 from the K-47 junction. Flaggers and a pilot car will direct one-lane traffic through the work zone; expect delays of 15 minutes or less. Weather permitting, the project should be finished by early September, according to KDOT.
