Demolition work on the 25th Street bridge over I-235 was scheduled to begin Friday night.

The work is part of a Kansas Department of Transportation project rebuilding five bridges on I-235, according to a news release from KDOT. Crews are expected to finish before 6 a.m. Monday.

Traffic on I-235 will be routed onto the ramps at 25th Street, the release said, and will stay open during the bridge demolition.

After the demolition, motorists will no longer be able to get to I-235 from 25th Street until a new bridge and new ramps are built. The bridge is scheduled to be done in November, the release said.
