The South Lawrence Trafficway will be closed this morning for the USA Cycling National Collegiate Road Championships bicycle race in the Lawrence area.
The Kansas Department of Transportation will block off the trafficway, which also is Kansas Highway 10, from 8:30 a.m. until around noon, when the race ends, from the Lecompton interchange on Interstate 70 west of Lawrence to the trafficway's junction with U.S. Highway 59 south of the city.
Road signs will designate U.S. 59, or Iowa Street, through Lawrence as the detour that morning. During the race, patrol officers will help residents who use the trafficway as the only access to their property.
Eastbound I-70 traffic can exit at the Lecompton ramp during the race, but drivers will only be allowed to drive to the north.
