MoDOT to close another lane on Buck O'Neil Bridge, but only at night

June 18, 2018 - 4:44 am

Another construction project will affect commutes for people who drive in and out of downtown Kansas City. 

While repairs continue underneath the southbound lanes of the Buck O'Neil Bridge, the Missouri Department of Transportation is going to need to shut down one of the two northbound lanes for two weeks. Resident Engineer James Pflum said they have to do some median modification work.

"The northbound left lane will be closed," Pflum said. "That's so we can really get in and do some of the structural steel work that we need to do that's really setting up for the major pieces of work that have to occur later on."

The lane closure runs from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Friday. Weather permitting, both northbound lanes on the Buck O'Neil bridge will be fully open again June 30.
