The project includes the complete reconstruction of 169 from Welda north to the junction with U.S. 59; and shoulder widening and replacement of the pavement from the U.S. 59 junction north to the roundabout south of Garnett. 

The project also will improve the vertical alignment of U.S. 169 to provide more opportunities to safely pass slow-moving vehicles.
