The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) announced on Aug. 24, starting around Wednesday, Aug. 31, traffic at the U.S. 50/U.S. 183 junction in Kinsley in Edwards County, Kan. will be controlled by temporary traffic signals in all directions.

Normally, the east-west traffic on U.S. 50 has no traffic signals, and the north-south U.S. 183 traffic is controlled by stop signs.

The temporary signals at the junction are being installed to allow nearby work to proceed on a KDOT project reconstructing U.S. 183 through Kinsley. The project is proceeding from the south end of Kinsley.

The overall project is expected to be completed around Nov. 18, 2023.

Vogts-Parga Construction, of Newton, is the primary contractor for the $5.8 million project.
