Motorists are being warned that traffic will move very slowly near the Kansas River bridges in Downtown Lawrence on Friday.
Construction crews will be back to work on the southbound bridge beginning at 9 a.m. Friday. Traffic will be reduced to one lane as crews begin repaving operations. A release from the Kansas Department of Transportation said motorists should “expect major delays” because there will be a significant amount of construction activity in the area.
The repaving work is expected to be completed by Friday afternoon. Crews will return in the spring to complete the remaining northbound lane of the bridge.
