A resurfacing project will begin on Monday, September 16, weather permitting, on a 20-mile stretch of K-16 from the K-13/K-99 junction at the city of Blaine in Pottawatomie County, west to the U.S. 77 junction just north of the city of Randolph in Riley County. Project work includes a 1-inch surface mill and a 1.5-inch asphalt overlay on all mainline lanes. The resurfacing project will smooth the road and fill surface defects that can shorten pavement life. Work will take place during daylight hours, Monday through Friday, with some occasional Saturday work. The work will be coordinated so that all lanes will be opened to traffic by one-half before sunset.
Beginning on Monday, September 16, eastbound and westbound K-16 will be reduced to one lane for both directions along with intermittent closures of adjacent cross roads during the project work hours. Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via a pilot car operation during daylight hours only. Drivers should expect delays of up to 15 minutes maximum and are encouraged to use alternate routes, if possible. There will be a 10-foot lane width restriction during project work hours only throughout the project duration.The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” when approaching and driving through the project work zone.
