A field survey for proposed pavement replacement and improvements on U.S. 77 in Cowley County is scheduled to begin around Monday, Sept. 13.

The field survey will be from Arkansas City north to Winfield. The length is about 8.75 miles and based on existing alignment.

The survey – estimated to be completed by Nov. 15 — will gather information needed for detailed design of the proposed improvements.

A member of the survey crew first will contact property owners and/or tenants for permission to enter private property. Survey activities will include the use of survey instruments on the ground to determine locations of existing features within the survey corridor.

Johnny Yackle, P.S., Survey Project Manager, HDR, will be in charge of this survey for the Kansas Department of Transportation.
