Pavement recycling project starts Monday north of Admire Kansas Department of Transportation map

Kansas Highway 99 north of Admire will have road construction beginning Monday and ending in late May.

In fact, it's road reconstruction.

The Kansas Department of Transportation says pavement between Admire and Eskridge will be recycled over the next month or so. The existing asphalt will be heated and scraped off. Oil will be added to the mix and the substance will then be immediately compacted back into place.

The project will start north of the Lyon-Wabaunsee county line and move south in the southbound lane to the junction of K-99 and US Highway 56. Work then will go north to Eskridge and then back to the county line.

A pilot car and flaggers will get drivers through the work zone. Lanes in both directions will be reduced to 12 feet in width. Drivers are told to expect delays of up to 15 minutes.

The project cost is estimated at $1.1 million. Bettis Asphalt and Construction of Topeka is the contractor.
