Motorists will notice street construction on 13th Street this week.

The city's Public Works Department will apply a seal coat from Milner to Vine, and an asphalt overlay from Vine to Harvest Lane on 13th Street. The roadway then will be striped, starting next week.

There will be a three-lane configuration from Milner to Harvest Lane, which will be a continuation of a three-lane configuration presently from Milner to Main.

The three-lane configuration from Vine to Harvest Lane will include room for bike paths in each direction, part of the city's Bike Hays Master Plan.

"It's going to take three, four days to get everything done," Hays Public Works Director I.D. Creech said of the seal and overlay portion of the project. "We'll maintain traffic through the area. We caution motorists to be aware of what's going on."

The project is to be completed by Oct. 31.
