[FORD COUNTY, Kan.]


The City of Dodge City announced on Sept. 13, starting Monday, Sept. 19 after 8 a.m. the north bound bridge of 14th Ave. over the Arkansas River will be closed for repairs.


The repair work will be done on the girders located under the bridge. No work will be done to the bridge deck, and all work will take place from the riverbed.


Once the repairs are completed and cured, the bridge will be opened to traffic. According to the City of Dodge City, the repair work is anticipated to take 10 days. Traffic control will be setup so that the south bound bridge can carry two-way traffic. North & South bound traffic will be narrowed to one lane on both sides of the river.


Dodge City government is encouraging people to obey all traffic control while traveling through this area.
