CLAY/JACKSON COUNTIES – The ramp from eastbound Interstate 70 to Broadway/6th St. and the ramp from Beardsley Rd. to Broadway/6th St. will be CLOSED beginning on Monday, May 2, for approximately two and  a half months, according to the Missouri Dept. of Transportation. This work is part of the construction of the new MO 169 Buck O’Neil Bridge over the Missouri River.

The new Missouri River Bridge will cost close to $220 million dollars to construct and expected to be completed by 2024. The new structure will be reasonably maintained, while providing a safe, connected, and accessible transportation facility that improves system performance.  

The current Buck O’Neil Memorial Bridge is a triple arch bridge carrying U.S. Route 169 over the Missouri River, and serves as a key regional connection between downtown Kansas City and communities north of the river. While safe, the bridge is nearing the end of its projected service life.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
