(WICHITA, Kan.) —
Officials with the Kansas Department of Transportation say repairs to a bridge at Kellogg and Seneca could take at least a month.
Friday afternoon a large truck driving south on Seneca struck the Kellogg bridge, damaging a concrete support. KDOT spokesperson Tom Hein says a contractor will be brought in to fix the bridge, which includes chipping out broken concrete, replacing a beam and putting in new concrete and bridge decking.
Hein says that drivers should look for the southbound lanes of Seneca and and far right lane of westbound Kellogg to remain closed for at least a month. Hein says he is not sure if the city of Wichita will make accomodations so both northbound and southbound traffic can use the northbound lanes of Seneca.
