OLATHE, Kan. — Drivers in Olathe who take Spruce Street underneath the bridge near downtown and N. Kansas Avenue encountered a mess on Thursday morning.
A truck driver struck the bridge underpass and Spruce, closing both directions for hours.
In addition to Spruce Street, Olathe police also say the tracks at Santa Fe and Kansas are closed for repairs. The good news is that Spruce Street has since reopened.
The situation with this bridge and inattentive drivers isn’t quite as dire as one across the state line, where the Independence Avenue Bridge in Kansas City has claimed multiple victims.
