Southbound I-635 left lane at Gibbs Road will be closed for eight consecutive weeks, 24/7 round the clock, beginning after morning rush hour on Tuesday, May 20, through late July, for bridge pier construction work on the new Gibbs Road Bridge over I-635.
Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via cones, signage and concrete barrier, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.
The posted speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph through the project work zone during this eight-week closure.

The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and slow down when approaching and driving through the project work zone.
The scheduled completion date for the entire project is early September 2014, weather permitting.
