A bridge patching repair project on the 36th Street bridge carrying I-135 in Harvey County started Monday. The project is located just south of the City of Newton.


Construction will take place during the day, and northbound traffic will be detoured to First Street and southbound traffic will be detoured to K-196 with both routes arriving back to 36th Street. Drivers should expect delays of less than 15 minutes and plan extra time in their travel schedules.

The project is scheduled to be completed, weather permitting, Aug. 4 and reopen to through traffic. Highway construction project locations and road condition information can be viewed at the http://511.ksdot.org website, or can also be accessed by telephone by dialing 511.
