STAFFORD AND EDWARDS COUNTY — Almost $10 million in resurfacing will start soon on a 38-mile stretch of U.S. 50 in Edwards and Stafford counties.

The Kansas Department of Transportation work on U.S. 50 involves two connected milling and hot-mix-asphalt projects. The Edwards County project is from the Kinsley west city limits to the Edwards/Stafford county line. The Stafford County project is from the Edwards/Stafford county line to the west end of the roundabout at the U.S. 281 junction. The length in Edwards County is nearly 23 miles; the length in Stafford County is 15 miles.

The Edwards County work is expected to begin around May 30 and be completed around July 8.

The Stafford County work is expected to begin around July 1 and be completed around Sept. 9.

During the work, traffic will be controlled by a pilot car, and motorists should be prepared to stop and expect delays of up to 15 minutes.

APAC-Kansas Inc., Shears Division, of Hutchinson, is the primary contractor for the $5,099,481 contract in Edwards County and the $4,850,016 contract in Stafford County.
