Repairs to the Minnesota Road overpass crossing U.S. 169 south of Iola will lead to minor delays for motorists, the Kansas Department of Transportation announced Wednesday.

Work will begin Monday to repair the bridge deck.

Flaggers will direct one-lane traffic across the bridge, and when necessary, on U.S. 169 below. There will be some concrete pavement patching operations ongoing simultaneously.

The work should be finished in about a week, KDOT said, and is part of the 169 pavement reconstruction project in Allen County.
