Field survey Set for Proposed U.S. 56 improvements in Rice County

RICE COUNTY – A field survey for proposed improvements on U.S. 56 in Rice County is expected to begin
around Monday, July 18.

The survey is for proposed shoulder widening and structure extensions as needed from the east city limits of Lyons (17th Road) east to the Rice/McPherson county line at Plum
Avenue/31st Road.

The approximate length of the survey will be 15 miles, and the survey will be based on the existing alignment.

This survey will be done to gather information needed for the detailed design of the proposed improvements. The survey is estimated to be completed by Oct. 28.

A member of the survey crew first will contact property owners and/or tenants for permission to enter private property if needed. Survey activities will include the use of survey instruments
on the ground to determine locations of existing features in the survey corridor.

John Lilak, P.S., Survey Manager, Bartlett & West, will be in charge of this survey.
