Due to forecasted weather conditions the southbound lanes for I-135 scheduled to be closed Sunday will now be scheduled to close on May 4.
The closure, located south of the US 50/K-15 interchange in Newton, to facilitate repair work on the SE 24th Street bridge over I-135, will begin at about 7 a.m.on May 4 and will last about four hours. A signed detour will route traffic from I-135 to US-50 to K-15 to South Kansas Avenue to S.E .36th Street then back to I-135. Oversized loads will not be able to navigate the detour, so over length or over width trucks will need to use an alternate route during this closure time period. Northbound I-135 traffic will be unaffected by this bridge work.
