There are quite a few projects up for bids at the KDOT October letting, including a couple of reconstruction projects, plenty of overlays, and quite a few county bridge projects.
The KDOT August lettings consist primarily of maintenance projects, including three state highway signage projects and a major collector signage project. The main replacement/widening project is on K-33 in Wellsville.
This post has been updated to reflect the approved bidders and the bid amount as announced by KDOT in a release on September 14 and October 7. The approved bids announced on September 14 will be noted in red. The approved bids announced on October 7 will be noted in blue.
Although “Outdoor recreational activity” was allowed here in Kansas under the state’s “Stay at Home” order, I didn’t really feel a reason to get out of the house until last Saturday, when I headed out to Pomona to check out an old spot that has changed quite a bit since the last time I was there.
Recently, BNSF replaced the truss bridges over the Marais des Cynges River between Pomona and Quenemo. The eastern bridge at MP 69 is right next to the Arkansas Terrace crossing.

The COVID-19 pandemic has not affected the ability of KDOT to put projects up for bids. However, KDOT did post the following note with the list of projects for the April letting:
The Kansas Department of Transportation April 22, 2020 Letting WILL remain as scheduled with possible procedural changes to accommodate public building restrictions due to the COVID-19 emergency. We will be in contact and keep you updated as details become available. Thanks.
Most likely, this means that the bids will be opened on a conference call. The March bids were read in this manner.
KDOT had a little issue with this letting… due to the US department of Labor changing the prevailing wage rates, the all of the bids for this letting had to be discarded and a special letting called for March 10th.
