The southbound I-435 right lane over the Metropolitan Avenue bridge will be closed for bridge deck work repair around the clock, beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13, and reopening at 2 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 15.
The location is between Kansas Avenue and K-32.
There will be two southbound I-435 through lanes still open to traffic during this right lane closure, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.
Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via signage, cones and arrow boards. Drivers should expect some delays during the daily peak time commutes and may wish to adjust their travel times accordingly, according to KDOT.

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.
