COLUMBUS, Kan. (AP) _ A state engineer says the construction project along U.S. 69 in southeast Kansas is eight months behind schedule due to weather.
Kansas Department of Transportation engineer George Dockery says the nine-mile reconstruction and rehabilitation project will take until mid-July due, instead of being done next month.
Construction began in September 2007. The section of highway from the south edge of Columbus to U.S. 166 has been closed since then.
Dockery says wet weather and muddy conditions have delayed the contractor.
