Johnson Drive Bridge Project

If your planning on visiting Wonderscope during the next several months we wanted to let you know about the Johnson Drive Bridge Closure. 

Construction began February 19, 2014 on the Johnson Drive bridge over Turkey Creek between Merriam Lane/Campbell Street and Merriam Drive.

The City will be replacing the structurally deficient bridge to improve safety for vehicular, transit, bicycle and pedestrian traffic. However, once construction begins, the bridge will be completely closed to vehicular traffic for the duration of the project (approximately 6 months contingent on weather).

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience while they work on this bridge. If you need further assistance, please call us at 913-287-8888. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you!
