JOHNSON COUNTY, Kan. — The drive between Johnson County and Lawrence just got a lot faster.

After months of construction, the Kansas Department of Transportation says crews completed work on six of eight bridge projects on K-10 in western Johnson County.

All lanes on K-10 are now open from K-7 to Kill Creek.

Construction started on the project in July.

Crews are still working to replace the bridge deck on westbound K-10 over Lexington Avenue. Pavement repairs on the westbound highway over Kill Creek are expected to be completed later this month.

Improvements are also underway at the K-10 and Lexington Avenue interchange. That project is not expected to be complete until February.
