Route B Bridge over the Little Platte River Closing in May
Platte County's Final Bridge under the Safe & Sound Bridge Program

PLATTE COUNTY, MO. - On May 1, The Missouri Department of Transportation will close the Route B Bridge over the Little Platte River -- Platte County's final bridge under the Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program.

The Route B Bridge built in 1957, carries more than 1300 vehicles per day and will be rehabilitated by Widel Inc.  Crews will close this bridge for no more than 32 days. A signed detour will direct traffic around the closure by Route KK, Route 169 and Route 92.  

The Safe & Sound program will improve 800 of Missouri's worst bridges in five years.  In the Kansas City area, MoDOT will replace or repair 145 bridges - 15 in Platte County.  Complete bridge closure is necessary to allow the contractor to complete the work quickly and open the bridges faster.

Inclement weather could postpone the project. For further information about this project and others, please visit MoDOT's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/modot.kansascity, Twitter site at www.twitter.com/modot_kc, or web site at www.modot.mo.gov/kansascity. You can also contact MoDOT 24 hours-a-day at 888-ASK-MODOT to find out information or report road concerns.
