Even though Allen County commissioners maintain some hope the Kansas Department of Transportation will help pay for damage done to detour routes while work was done on U.S.-169, it knows the money it will receive from the cost share program will cover the costs. 

Mitch Garner, public works director, reported that Darren Petrowsky, who serves as a KDOT representative has submitted his report to his superiors and is still waiting to hear of their response. Garner said nothing has been decided yet, but Petrowsky will schedule a meeting with the commissioners once he hears something.

Bettis Asphalt has already begun some of the repair work. In all, there were seven projects totalling $816,729. 25 on the bid sheet. Commissioners agreed to begin on three of the projects, while providing temporary fixes in some areas.
