KDOT Begins 25th Street Bridge Demolition


Beginning Friday, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will be demolishing a bridge that passes over I-235 in northwest Wichita.

The demolition of the 25th Street bridge over I-235 is set to be completed by 6 a.m. on Monday. The work is part of a nearly $20 million project which will include the rebuilding of five bridges that pass over I-235.

KDOT says I-235 traffic will be rerouted through the area. Traffic will be reduced to a single lane, and existing ramps will be used to avoid the project.

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 25th Street bridge is expected to be finished in November.
