Motorists heading east on U.S. Highway 56 will be in for delays starting Wednesday when the Kansas Department of Transportation starts a resurfacing project.

The resurfacing project will start at the Douglas/Johnson county line and go east to the city limits of Gardner. A KDOT spokesman said that weather permitting, crews will work daily, Monday through Friday, during daytime hours.

The highway will be reduced to one lane during most of the time and flaggers will coordinate with pilot cars to guide traffic through the project. Delays of 15 minutes can be expected and motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes.

The project is expected to last through the middle of July, the spokesman said.
