Broadway Bridge to Explode Today


The second of three explosions to dismantle the Buck O'Neil Bridge happened today, necessitating road closures in the vicinity. Periodic closures are anticipated on the northbound lane of U.S. Highway 169, spanning from 5th Street to Richards Road, as the demolition is slated to occur sometime between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Due to safety concerns, the demolition site will not be accessible to the public, but footage will be made available. The Missouri Department of Transportation advises drivers to decrease their speed and remain vigilant in work zones, as conditions may change frequently.
