LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Drivers across a Kansas River bridge near Lawrence might have some trouble keeping their eyes on the road.

The guardrail on the east side of the bridge has been decorated with hundreds of decorated bras. The display is to publicize Breast Cancer Awareness Month and promote Health Care Access, a clinic that provides health care for poor Douglas County residents.

The Bras Across the Kaw exhibit is not a new display. But Shelly Wakeman, director of the Health Care Clinic, says people didn't always know who hung the bras, or the purpose of the display. Two large pink banners hung this year explain those points.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports, money raised by the display will go to Health Care Access. The display will be up through Oct. 20.
