Beginning today, the Kansas Department of Transportation will run tests of pavement strength on some of the busy state and federal highways in Crawford and Cherokee counties.

The routes are:

Kansas Highway 47 from the Neosho-Crawford county line east to Girard;

Kansas Highway 7 from Girard south to Cherokee;

U.S. Highway 160 from U.S. Highway 69 east to the Kansas-Missouri state line;

U.S. Highway 400 from the Labette-Cherokee county line east to U.S. 69;

Kansas 103 from Kansas 7 east to U.S. 69;

Kansas 102 from West Mineral east to Kansas 7.

KDOT reminds all drivers to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through the testing zones.
