Survey Work

STARTING TODAY, AND CONTINUING FOR APPROXIMATELY FIVE MONTHS, A SURVEY TEAM FROM THE KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (KDOT) WILL BE SURVEYING ALONG K-383 HIGHWAY IN NORTON COUNTY.
THE SURVEY WORK WILL OCCUR ALONG THE CORRIDOR BEGINNING AT THE U.S. 36 JUNCTION AND ENDING AT THE NORTON/PHILLIPS COUNTY LINE.
THE FIELD SURVEY IS A CONTINUATION OF THE SURVEY OF K-383, WHICH WAS INITIATED IN PHILLIPS COUNTY EARLIER THIS YEAR. THE SURVEY IS NECESSARY FOR THE DETAILED DESIGN OF THE PROPOSED IMPROVEMENT OF THIS 26-MILE SECTION OF K-383, WHICH WAS SELECTED AS ONE OF THE MODERNIZATION PROJECTS IN NORTHWEST KANSAS. THE MODERNIZATION PROJECT WILL BE FUNDED BY T-WORKS. SURVEY ACTIVITIES WILL INCLUDE THE USE OF SURVEY INSTRUMENTS ON THE GROUND TO DETERMINE LOCATIONS OF EXISTING FEATURES WITHIN THE SURVEY CORRIDOR. WHEN IT BECOMES NECESSARY FOR CREW MEMBERS TO ENTER PRIVATE PROPERTY, THEY WILL FIRST OBTAIN PERMISSION FROM THE LANDOWNER OR TENANT. A KICKOFF MEETING TO OUTLINE THE PROPOSED MODERNIZATION PROJECT OF K-383 IN BOTH NORTON AND PHILLIPS COUNTIES HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR 5 P.M. ON JUNE 13 AT THE ALMENA COMMUNITY BUILDING. MORE DETAILS ON THIS EVENT WILL BE PUBLICIZED IN EARLY JUNE. KIM HUXMAN, L.S., PARTY CHIEF WITH KDOT, WILL BE IN CHARGE OF THIS SURVEY.
