Bridge repairs and core sampling on Wichita roads

June 01, 2020 - 7:06 pm

A Kansas Department of Transportation project to repair the northbound I-135 bridge from U.S. 54 to 17th Street North has begun and will impact traffic beginning June 5. 

On Friday night, at 7:00 p.m., closure of the left and center lanes will begin. Late Sunday, the lanes will re-open and the right lane will be closed. Adjacent ramps, when work is nearby, will also be closed Sunday night through Wednesday morning.

Road crews will also be extracting core samples from a bridge deck on the southbound I-135 bridge and ramp to eastbound U.S. 54/400 in central Wichita each weekday beginning June 1 and possibly through the next week. The samples help determine necessary future work on the ramp.

Closure of the exit ramp will take place at 9:00 a.m. and it should reopen at 3:00 p.m. This closure will be repeated each weekday until the work is completed. Daytime closures are expected through the week of June 1 but, if necessary, they could continue through the week of June 8.
