SALINE COUNTIES -Interstate 70 will be down to one lane in both directions at Route YY from 9 p.m. Monday, Aug. 30 to 6 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 31. During this time, crews will set girders on the Route YY bridge over I-70.

I-70 traffic will be routed on the Route YY on and off ramps. I-70 traffic will not be able to access Route YY, and Route YY traffic will not have access to I-70, while I-70 is down to one lane. Motorists should plan alternative routes.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
