I-635 lanes at Gibbs Road to be reduced Sunday morning

Northbound and southbound I-635 at Gibbs Road will be reduced to one lane each direction between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. on Sunday, April 13, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.

During the lane closure, AT&T crews will place a telephone line across the roadway.

The Kansas Highway Patrol will assist with a “rolling roadblock” to slow traffic as crews stretch the utility line across the highway. Traffic will be directed through the work zone via cones and signage, and via KHP vehicles during the rolling roadblock portion.

Motorists are urged to slow down when approaching and driving through the work zone, a KDOT spokesman said.
