The Kansas Department of Transportation is alerting drivers that Kansas Highway 16 that crosses the northern end of Tuttle Creek Lake, also known as the Randolph Mile-Long Bridge, is currently reduced to a single lane around the clock until the middle of April.

Drivers should expect minor delays as they are directed through the work zone via temporary traffic signals located at either end of the bridge. There will be a 12-foot lane width restriction throughout the project duration.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, take it slow, obey the warning signs, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” when approaching and driving through the project work zone.
