KDOT delays start of U.S. 56 repaving work until Monday
U.S. Highway 56 commuters heading east got a reprieve from repaving delays, but it won't last long.
The Kansas Department of Transportation announced last week that repaving work on U.S. 56 from the Douglas/Johnson county line east to Gardner would start Wednesday. However, KDOT sent out a new press release Wednesday saying the work would begin Monday instead.
The highway will be reduced to one lane with a pilot vehicle used to escort traffic through the work zone. Delays of up to 15 minutes are expected and KDOT is suggesting that motorists find alternate routes.
KDOT had said the project would last through the middle of July.
