U.S. 283 mill and overlay project to begin in Ford County

Special to the Globe

Crews are expected to begin a mill and overlay project on U.S. 283 in Ford County on Thursday, June 25, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.

Crews will begin at the U.S. 50/283 junction east of Dodge City and continue north to the Hodgeman County Line.

Motorists should expect delays as traffic will be reduced to one lane guided by a pilot car during the project.

Venture Corporation of Great Bend is the contractor on this $1.5 million project, which is expected to be completed in September, weather permitting.
