Bridge Project Continues 

The new John Jordan Buck O’Neil Memorial Bridge (formerly the Broadway Bridge) won’t be complete until late this year, but it’s already easing traffic issues for Northlanders and others crossing from Clay to Jackson County and back over the Missouri River.

Part of a $257-million project to replace the 57-year-old structure, the roadway improvements will make a significant difference with a key connection. Travelers on southbound Highway 169 this year will be able to continue without interruption to I-35 southbound, eliminating the stoplight bottleneck at I-70. Although temporary closures may impact some routes, the bridge and surrounding work is now 80 percent complete.

The Missouri Department of Transportation and the City of Kansas City, Missouri worked together to procure the funding, including a $25-million federal grant. Massman-Clarkson was the design-build contractor chosen for the work, which began three years ago in February. The effort also is still within budget, a remarkable footnote given the erratic economy of the past three years.

Up-to-date information on the bridge project is available at this link.
