They discovered the broken joint on Monday.

Starting at 9:00 today (Tuesday, 12/19), the right lane of SB I-135 from Central to 1st St., will be closed plus the entrance ramp onto SB I-135 from 1st St. will be closed to begin the repairs.

The lane and ramp will reopen at 3 pm.

On Wednesday, from 9 am until 3 pm, the left and center lanes of SB I-135 from Central to 1st St. will be closed to finish the repair across the expansion joint. The 1st St. entrance ramp onto SB I-135 will again be closed during these hours.

Drivers should expect some congestion during the lane and ramp closure and use appropriate caution.

The exit ramps to U.S. 54 will remain open during the repairs.
