Motorists should once again expect delays on the Kansas River bridges in downtown Lawrence, this time as state crews inspect recent work completed on the bridges.
Northbound traffic will be reduced to one lane from at least 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday as state transportation crews conduct inspections on the bridge. Motorists likely will notice traffic impacts earlier. Crews are expected to begin setting up traffic control devices at 7:30 a.m. The northbound left lane of the bridge will be closed.
On Thursday, work will shift to the southbound Kansas River bridge. Crews will conduct inspections from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., but work is expected to begin as early as 7:30 a.m. The left lane of the southbound bridge will be closed.
Both closings are expected to last only for one day.
The Kansas Department of Transportation recently completed a major repaving project on the two bridges.
