Ramp closure begin Monday for Buck O’Neil Bridge replacement

Drivers traveling in the Downtown loop can expect to see more closures due to construction to replace the Buck O’Neil Bridge over the Missouri River, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation.

Beginning Monday (May 2), crews will close the ramps from eastbound Interstate 70 and Beardsley Road to Broadway Boulevard and 6th Street. The ramps, which are in the northwest corner of the Downtown highway loop, will remain closed for about three months. The ramp closings are part of $220 million project to replace the aging Buck O’Neil Bridge near the Wheeler Downtown Airport.
