Guardrail replacement on U.S. 54/400 east of Augusta to begin soon
A guardrail replacement project on U.S. 54/400 east of Augusta is expected to start around Nov. 1.
The Kansas Department of Transportation project will be in Butler County on U.S. 54/400 from the east city limits of Augusta to the junction of U.S. 54/77/400. The length is almost 7 miles.
The work, at various locations along that stretch, is expected to begin around Nov. 1 and end around early March 2022. During the work, there will be a single lane closure at one location at a time, and motorists will be directed to decrease their speed.
Bettis Asphalt & Construction Inc., of Topeka, is the primary contractor for the $897,933 project.
