Commuters who travel through northwest Wichita may want to alter their route on Friday because of planned lane closures.
The ramp from northbound I-235 to westbound K-96 will be closed from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m., Kansas Department of Transportation spokesman Tom Hein said.
The left lane from westbound K-96 from Meridian to just west of the Big Arkansas River bridge will also be closed. The closures will allow a maintenance crew to repair an expansion joint at the west end of the bridge, Hein said.
To access westbound K-96 from northbound I-235, exit at Meridian and travel north on Meridian under I-235 and K-96, then turn left onto the ramp to westbound K-96, he said.
