Weather delays road work on East 23rd Street

March 22, 2013


The Kansas Department of Transportation has suspended a road maintenance project that was scheduled to begin Monday on East 23rd Street between Haskell and Barker Avenues.

KDOT said the project has been suspended until further notice due to cold temperatures and the likelihood of snow this weekend.

The project is expected to take three days and calls for milling and overlay on either side of the new bridge. During the project, traffic in both directions will be reduced to one lane between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

KDOT said it will make an announcement when the work is rescheduled.

All those 'good days' with no workers for weeks wasted. Now, got some bad weather they use this for an excuse to delay?! If only expected to take 3 days to finish, this job SHOULD have been done long ago. Typical RD Johnson AND KDOT.

There are all those pesky little details called work and material delivery schedules, contractual requirements, pre-existing personnel/project conflicts, etc. When weather interferes with a road project in March, you suggest they should have started earlier? During the Winter? When we should expect snow and other inclement weather? Would you have preferred they start before completing the bridge replacement?

Honestly, what the heck is it to you whether they start on 3/25? An opportunity to complain?

Don't confuse the issue with details and logic bad_dog...Grandma has an ax to grind!
