|U.S. 36 in Norton, before the work began this summer.|
U.S. 36 through Norton is getting a face lift this summer as part of the Kansas Department of Transportation’s Geometric Improvement program.
The project, which began in April, will reconstruct and widen the existing four-lane roadway from West Ave. to near the U.S. 283 junction. Each lane will be widened from 10 1/2 feet to 12 feet. The expansion is necessary to improve roadway conditions and accommodate large truck traffic through the city limits. Smoky Hill LLC is the primary contractor for the project, which is expected to be completed by the end of October, weather permitting.
KDOT is funding approximately 75 percent of the $1.9 million project, with the city covering the remainder.
