Bridge work to reduce I-70 lanes outside of Lawrence
Work is set to begin Monday on a multi-layer polymer concrete overlay on the eastbound Interstate 70 lanes of the Kansas River Bridge near Lawrence.
The project begins with crews working on the right outside lane followed by work on the far left lane. The overlay on the middle lane will occur at night and will require the closure of the far left and middle lanes.
Applying a polymer overlay helps extend the life of the bridge and creates safer winter driving conditions.
Traffic will be impacted with lane closures throughout the project. Work is expected to be completed mid-September, weather permitting.
