Allen County commissioners determined three roads deserved immediate repairs at their meeting Tuesday morning. The roads incurred increased traffic during the rebuild of US 169.

 Though Bettis Asphalt bid on seven projects last month, county officials still have yet to hear from  the Kansas Department of Transportation as to how how much they will pay for repair work. 

Commissioners all agreed the top priority was on Old US-169 south of the quarry bridge located south of Humboldt city limits to Connecticut Road. Public works director Mitch Garner agreed to ask Bettis Asphalt for a cost adjustment. The original plan was to do a 2-inch mill and overlay for the entire stretch. That project was slated to cost $334,125.
