While Allen County officials wait to hear back from the Kansas Department of Transportation about possible repair work on roads used as detours during construction on US-169, commissioner Jerry Daniels recommended the county be proactive and pick out the top two or three spots that need immediate attention.
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.
I think if we dont hear anything from KDOT soon, we need to prioritize some of the hot spots and get them done in October, Daniels said.
