Milling and Overlay on K-61 Highway to Resume in Pratt and Reno Counties

Starting the week of March 27th, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT), following winter weather postponement, will resume construction of a 34.6 mile road milling and overlay project on K-61 Highway in Pratt and Reno Counties, from the North City Limits of Pratt, north to the bridge carrying K-61 Highway over North Fork Ninnescah River in the City of Arlington.

Traffic through this work zone will be controlled by flagmen and pilot car, so drivers can expect delays of less than 15 minutes. The work area will move daily and work will be underway during daylight hours only. All loads over 12' of total width should seek alternative routes. This preservation project is scheduled to be completed in April, depending on delays caused by adverse weather conditions.

APAC Kansas, Inc., Shears Division from Hutchinson, Kansas is the prime contractor for this $5,082,000 project, which is funded by T-WORKS, the transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature. For more information about T-WORKS projects and funding visit the website, Highway construction project locations and road condition information can be viewed at the website, or can also be accessed by telephone by dialing 511.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and "Give ‘Em a Brake!" when approaching and driving through a highway work zone. Persons with questions about this road work or other KDOT projects can call South Central Kansas Public Affairs Manager, Zach Oswald, at 620-663-3361 or 1-877-550-5368 (Toll free).
