Drivers can expect traffic delays in Merriam for the next few months, as road crews begin a construction project along Shawnee Mission Parkway at I-35.

The road and bridge improvement project will require officials to reduce traffic to two lanes for eastbound and westbound traffic.

The work is slated for 80 calendar days, said Carl Sanders, Merriam Projects Coordinator.

"Roughly, June 21 would be the completion date," Sanders said. 

Sanders recommends using an alternate route to avoid using Shawnee Mission Parkway at I-35 until the project is complete.
