U.S. 183 Restricted through Kinsley for Reconstruction Project


KINSLEY, Kan. – U.S. 183 between U.S. 50 and U.S. 56 in Kinsley will be restricted to one lane starting around Feb. 27 for a Kansas Department of Transportation project.

The restriction is needed to allow crews to resume work on reconstructing U.S. 183 through Kinsley. Workers will be building one lane at a time. On the side with traffic, Kinsley residents can use their driveways; on the side under construction, they will need to use the alley or side street.

During the restriction, traffic at Kinsley will also be detoured onto U.S. 50 and U.S. 56. The U.S. 183 reconstruction through town is expected to be completed by Nov. 18.

The project is about three-quarters of a mile long, from the south city limits to the U.S. 56/183 junction. The map below shows the project location, marked in red.

Vogts-Parga Construction, of Newton, is the primary contractor for the $5,817,680 project.
