Temporary lane closures may be occurring during the next few weeks along Interstate in Sherman County as contractors begin seeding the right-of-way along the newly constructed lanes.
Beginning at the Colorado/Kansas state line and extending 12 miles east, workers will be performing permanent seeding operations along the east and westbound right-of-way as well the center median of the interstate.
“Traffic will be minimally affected as one lane of directional travel will remain open during the lane closures,” explains KDOT Area Engineer Eric Oelschlager.
Please use caution, pay attention to the work zone signs, and respect workers when driving through any road construction zone. Slow down and “Give ‘Em A Brake”.
KDOT awarded the seeding contract totaling $257,743 – to Truelsen Blumenthal L.L.C. D.B.A. Soil-Tek, of Grimes, Iowa.
This seeding project is funded by T-WORKS, the transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature in May of 2010.
