Repairs to delay traffic on NE Kansas bridge

March 12, 2012


— Motorists who depend on the Centennial Bridge connecting Leavenworth in northeastern Kansas and Platte County in Missouri can expect weeks of delays while crews carry out repairs.

The Kansas Department of Transportation says that from Monday until late August, only one lane will be open at a time, meaning eastbound and westbound traffic will have to alternate.

The bridge carries Kansas 92 from Leavenworth over the Missouri River to northwestern Missouri, where drivers can pick up Missouri Route 45 or connect with Interstate 29 a few miles farther east.

KDOT suggests drivers consider alternate ways to cross the Missouri River, including the Amelia Earhart Bridge farther north at Atchison or the I-435 bridge farther south.
