The project begins at the Y intersection at US-56 west of Ellinwood and extends eastward to the Hirsch Avenue intersection (East 110 Avenue). 7th Street along the north edge of Ellinwood is included in the work.
Venture plans to do asphalt milling and overlay work on various side street intersections along 7th Street first, and follow that up with the asphalt overlay on the roadway. The final phase of the project will be to place a narrow rock wedge along the edges of the new overlay.
The project should be completed within one week barring any weather delays. Traffic will be allowed through the work zone with a pilot car and flaggers, and motorists are advised to plan on delays in the work zone.
The project is funded by Barton County at a cost of $288,968.
