Resurfacing on K-4 to Begin Monday


By Kansas Department of Transportation


SALINE/DICKINSON COUNTY, Kan. — Beginning Monday, July 1, the Kansas Department of Transportation plans to begin a mill and overlay project on about 21 miles of K-4 in Saline and Dickinson counties.

Work on K-4 will occur from the south city limits of Gypsum and continue east to the K-4/K-43 junction, near the north city limits of Hope.

During construction, flaggers and a pilot car will be used to direct one lane of traffic through the work zone at a reduced speed. Drivers should be prepared for a delay of up to 15 minutes and plan extra time in their travel schedules.

Shilling Construction Co. Inc., of Manhattan is the prime contractor for this $3.3 million project which is scheduled for completion by October, weather permitting.

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 all road construction projects across Kansas, go to or call 5-1-1.
