"The work starts Friday night to eventually replace the bridge deck from westbound I-70 to southbound I-635.

"Work during the weekend of June 3 will close westbound I-70 from Park Drive to I-635, and eastbound I-70 at I-635. State Avenue will also close at I-635, and Kaw Drive will close from 57th Street to Park Drive.
