The Pawnee County Road and Bridge Department has been working on the Correction Line in a joint project with Barton County to modify and construct new box structures which will replace the old low water crossing points. Please understand that there is a sanctioned window in which this type of construction can be completed. November 1 is the cut-off point for getting oil for overlays and a seal. This dictates that construction must be completed and over-layed by a specific date. Oil cannot be purchased again until April 15 so all current projects have a completion widow fast approaching. We understand that harvest time is upon us too and we apologize for any inconveniences this may cause area farmers.
This is road work season so be on the look out for road construction and give them a brake.
The Road and Bridge Department will be working on the North Burdett Road today. The Road will be closed to heavy traffic between O and T Roads for the remainder of the week. We apologize for any inconvenience during this busy time of year however road conditions dictate that crews take action now and make the roads safe for everyone. Road work season has been slow to get started this year due to wet conditions. Please watch out for the guys on the road and give them a brake!
