Heavy rains have forced an eastern Sedgwick County road to close.
Flood waters damaged a bridge near 159th St. and Lincoln St after a thunderstorm dumped more than an inch of rain in the area.
Officials said the road is impassible during high water; drivers should avoid the area.
Crews are currently removing the damaged asphalt and making temporary repairs. The road is expected to reopen on Saturday after repair work is complete.
