The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) plans to place a chip seal on U.S. 59 in Allen and Anderson counties starting Monday, weather permitting. The 23-mile project is located between the south junction of U.S. 59/U.S. 169 and the U.S. 59/U.S. 54 junction at Moran.

The chip seal operations are to begin on the section between Kincaid and U.S. 169. At the same time, workers will patch U.S. 59 three miles south of the U.S. 59/K-31 junction. Flaggers and a pilot car will direct one-lane traffic through the work zone during daylight hours; expect delays of 15 minutes or less. The road work should be completed by early August.
