RILEY COUNTY - The Kansas Department of Transportation has started a mill and overlay project on K-13.

The project begins at the U.S. 24 junction in Riley County and will end 15 miles up the road at the K-16 junction in Pottawatomie County.

A pilot car and flaggers will direct traffic through the work area, as traffic will be reduced to one lane during working hours.

Drivers should expect delays up to 15 minutes while waiting for the pilot car.

Also, while reduced, the traveling lane will be only 13-feet wide, loads wider than 13 feet will need to take alternate routes.

Crews will be working during daylight hours Monday through Friday.

The $3.9 million project is expected to be complete by mid-June by Shilling Construction Co. of Manhattan.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through a highway work zone. To stay aware of highway construction projects across Kansas, go to www.kandrive.org or call 5-1-1.
