Starting Wednesday, September 11 and continuing for approximately two weeks, a survey team from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will begin surveying along K-27 Highway in Wallace County.
The survey work will take place along the corridor beginning approximately seven miles north of the Greeley/Wallace County line and extending north five miles.
The survey is necessary for the appraisal staking for right-of-way acquisition essential for the proposed modernization project to rebuild and widen this section of K-27. The project is currently scheduled to let to contract in 2015.
Survey activities will include the use of survey instruments on the ground to determine locations of existing features within the survey corridor. When it becomes necessary for crew members to enter private property, they will first obtain permission from the landowner or tenant.
Bob Brown, L.S., party chief with KDOT, will be in charge of this survey. For more information regarding the land survey, please contact Northwest Kansas Public Affairs Manager Kristen Brands at (785) 877-331
