[ARCHIVED] W. Wichita Avenue Project Begins October 21st

Wichita Ave

As part of a multi-year plan to improve our roadways, a mill and overlay project on W. Wichita Avenue, from Fossil Street west to VanHouten Street, will begin on Monday, August 21, 2023.  The project will begin with a curb and gutter replacement, milling the roadway surface, replacing numerous concrete base sections, and an asphalt overlay.  There will be occurrences when for a short time, the access points off W. Wichita Avenue onto side streets will be closed while the operation passes through that spot.  Traffic will be directed to the next nearest side street.   This project should be completed by October 15, 2023, weather permitting. 

The City of Russell received a $360,600 Community Development Block Grant and a $36,030 Dane G. Hansen Grant to cover part of the $824,050 project cost. 

 APAC of Hays, KS, is the primary contractor.
