Crews Will Temporarily Close All Lanes of the New U.S. 69 Missouri River Bridge for Project Completion Work

Crews will temporarily close all northbound and southbound lanes of the new U.S. 69 Missouri River Bridge from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, March 16 to finish last items of work on the bridge. This is all part of a project to replace the current U.S. 69 Highway Bridge over the Missouri River. A new structure has been constructed in its place which includes multiple lanes and bike/pedestrian access. This project is shared by the Kansas Department of Transportation and MoDOT.

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.
