Perhaps work crews are taking a bit of a break for the next few days, gearing up for the new year.
In any case, here is a rundown of the area road and bridge projects expected to cause detours or potential driving delays, as reported by government and agency officials:
• Construction of The Oread, a mixed-use and hotel project, continues to limit traffic north of the Kansas University campus, and the restrictions are scheduled to last into spring.
Among them: 12th Street, closed to westbound traffic from west of Louisiana Street to Indiana Street; Indiana, closed to traffic from 12th to a half block south; and Oread Avenue, restricted to local traffic only from 12th to 13th streets.
• Bridge replacement work in Wyandotte County is completed at the Seventh Street Trafficway ramp for eastbound traffic on Interstate 70.
Kansas Highway 7
• Construction of a new interchange in Wyandotte County for Kansas Highway 7 at U.S. Highways 24-40 has closed all ramps at the interchange.
The interchange also has limited traffic heading north and south to one lane in each direction along K-7, from 130th Street to Parallel Parkway.
Traffic heading east and west also has been squeezed to one lane in each direction along U.S. 24-40, from the 130th to 142nd streets.
