(WIBW) - Expect delays the next few weeks if you're driving on Highway 75 in northern Kansas.
The next phase of a reconstruction project gets underway Tuesday, March 12, on Highway 75 in Nemaha and Brown counties. Crews are working on a five-mile stretch from Sabetha to the Kansas/Nebraska line.
The first two weeks involve shoulder work. KDOT says traffic will be directed through the work zone with cones and signage. Once that is complete, work moves into the traffic lanes. For the next two weeks, crews will be milling the lanes. A pilot car and flagger will be used to take drivers through the work zone. Drivers should expect delays up to 15 minutes.
Once millwork is complete, KDOT says crews will move to paving work, which is expected to take a month to complete. A pilot car and flagger will continue to be used during that time.
While this phase of the project should wrap up before mid-May, the entire project will continue through November 2013.
