LIBERTY, MO (KCTV) -- The Missouri Highway 152/Kansas Street Bridge over I-35 will close in the early evening hours on Friday.
The Missouri Department of Transportation said that interstate traffic will be redirected to the off and on ramps during demolition. I-35 will reopen to normal traffic by 6 a.m. June 3.
The bridge is expected to reopen by the end of September.
The project is expected to be complete by the end of August 2020.
This is all part of a project to replace the bridge and to make improvements to Kansas Street and Missouri Highway 291. The improvements include adding wider lanes and additional turn lanes.
The project will also address bicycle and pedestrian needs along the corridor, and a multiple-use path along the south side of Hwy. 152 and Kansas Street.
The project is estimated at $30 million, jointly funded between MoDOT, and the cities of Liberty and Kansas City, MO.
