A survey for proposed shoulder widening on U.S. 160 in Sumner County is scheduled to begin around Sept. 8 and be completed by Dec. 31.

The survey will occur on U.S. 160 from just east of I-35 east to the west city limits of

Oxford. The approximate length of the survey is 9 miles.

The survey, being done for the Kansas Department of Transportation, is based on existing alignment.

A member of the survey crew will contact property owners and/or tenants for permission to

enter private property. Survey activities will include use of survey instruments on the ground

to determine locations of existing features in the survey corridor.

The map below shows the approximate section – marked in red – that is involved in the survey.
