Vine Street in Hays has been reconstructed from 27th to 22nd, and this spring the next phase will be done. Assistant Public Works Director John Braun says this segment will encompass 22nd south to 13th.
The bid from Pavers Inc out of Salina for $1,049,000 is lower than the engineer’s estimate, and through a grant KDOT will pay 50% of the construction cost up to $400,000. The city’s portion will be around $707,000.
The project is scheduled to begin in April and last through July. As with the last project, signage will be posted to direct consumers to the businesses affected by the construction.
