Survey Work

STARTING NEXT WEDNESDAY AND CONTINUING FOR APPROXIMATELY FOUR WEEKS, A SURVEY TEAM FROM THE KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION WILL BEGIN SURVEYING ALONG U.S. 83 IN DECATUR COUNTY. THE SURVEY WORK WILL TAKE PLACE APPROXIMATELY ¾-MILE SOUTH OF THE U.S. 36 JUNCTION. SPECIFICALLY, THE SURVEY WILL FOCUS ON THE BRIDGE LOCATED OVER THE DRAINAGE TRIBUTARY OF SAPPA CREEK. THE SURVEY IS NECESSARY FOR THE DETAILED DESIGN OF THE REPLACEMENT OF THE BRIDGE. SURVEY ACTIVITIES WILL INCLUDE THE USE OF SURVEY INSTRUMENTS ON THE GROUND TO DETERMINE LOCATIONS OF 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.  PLEASE USE CAUTION, PAY ATTENTION TO THE WORK ZONE SIGNS, AND RESPECT WORKERS WHEN DRIVING THROUGH ANY ROAD CONSTRUCTION ZONE. SLOW DOWN AND “GIVE ‘EM A BRAKE”.
