WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - This weekend, drivers will see a major thoroughfare between east and west Wichita close temporarily. 

The Kansas Department of Transportation says the ramp from southbound I-135 to eastbound K-96 and the ramp from westbound K-96 to northbound I-135 will be closed part of the day on Saturday, May 11. 

The closures, beginning at 7 a.m., are so crews can remove a crane and concrete safety barriers. Detour signs will help guide drivers to alternate routes during the closures, which are expected to be completed Saturday afternoon. 

KDOT urges drivers to be alert and obey warning signs when approaching and driving through highway work zones. You can check road conditions and closures by calling 511 or visiting KanDrive.org
