A pair of road projects are underway in Northwest Kansas. Resurfacing work starts today (Monday 6/16) on both I-70 and highway 24 between Levant and Colby. A layer of asphalt is going down on both stretches of the road. Flaggers will wave you through on 24, which will be down to one lane during daylight hours. I-70 is down to one lane each way during the paving project. KDOT expects to be done working on both roads by early July.
In Rawlins County, road construction starts today (Monday 6/16) from the Thomas County line to Atwood along K-25. Crews will shave down the pavement and pour a new layer of roadway. They’ll also work on resurfacing U-S 36 from 10 miles west of Atwood all the way to the Decatur County line. It could be September before that’s all done.
