The county Road and Bridge department will have a full patching  schedule this spring and summer, working the areas in red on this county map.

Spring means one thing for drivers — construction season has arrived. The Harvey County Road and Bridge department will begin its 2021 asphalt patching program this week.

The work will begin in the City of Sedgwick on Commercial Avenue from First to Eighth streets, followed by Washington Avenue from First to Eighth. Patching on these streets is estimated to take two weeks, contingent on weather.
