Parts of Interstate will be closed through this fall for work on the Buck O’Neil bridge replacement project, with northbound I-35 closed between 12th Street to eastbound Interstate 70.
This closure will last approximately 275 days, according to a release from the Missouri Department of Transportation. The closure is due to construction of a new retaining wall along I-35 for a new bridge over 6th Street and for bridge rehabilitation work.
From the same release:
City officials broke ground on the $220 million bridge replacement project in June 2021. The project is expected to be completed by December 2024.
