The Kansas Department of Transportation has announced that on Monday, October 31st, a contractor will begin work on an emergency bridge repair project along K-10. Locations effected by the repair work include the westbound K-10 bridges over Lexington Avenue, Kill Creek and Mill Creek, in Johnson County. The work  will occur during daylight hours, Monday through Friday.

The project will begin at 7 a.m. on Monday, October 31st and westbound K-10 will be reduced to one lane, 24/7, round the clock, from Ridgeview Road to Woodland Avenue (approximately one mile), in Lenexa and from the Kill Creek bridge to Lexington Avenue (approximately one and a half miles) in De Soto. Concrete barriers will be in place and a 55 mph speed limit posted throughout the project work zone. A 12-foot lane width restriction will also be in place, as well as no shoulder availability over bridges throughout the length of the project.

Advance signage will be in place to alert drivers to the lane closures. Drivers through the area should expect delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes as possible.

PCI Roads will be the primary contractor for the $91,094 bridge repair project. The project is scheduled to be fully compelted by mid-November 2011, weather permitting. This project is funded by T-WORKS, the transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature in May 2010. More information on this and other T-WORKS projects can be found at

KDOT reminds all motorists to be alert, obey warning signs and "Give 'Em a Brak!" when approaching and driving through project work zones.
