MoDOT Kansas City is replacing the bridge over I-49 at 140th Street in Grandview, MO. This project will benefit motorists and pedestrians by providing a brand new bridge and ADA improvements.

This bridge is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.


Construction is currently scheduled to begin in May 2020 and be completed in August 2020.


The cost of construction for this project is $3.1 million and is funded by MoDOT.


MoDOT will CLOSE the 140th St. bridge over I-49 beginning Tuesday, May 5. The demolition of the bridge will begin at approximately 8 p.m. on Friday, May 8 until 5 a.m. on Monday, May 11. This demolition will require the CLOSURE of I-49 in both directions at 140th St. during this time. Motorists will be routed off and back on to I-49 at 140th St. via the on and off ramps. All work is weather permitting.

During construction, 140th Street over I-49 will be closed. All local traffic will be detoured. Signed detours will be provided using the outer roads, and available cross streets.  Westbound 140th St. traffic will be routed north on the East Outer Road to cross I-49 at Main St. and then back to 140th St. via the West Outer Road.  Eastbound 140th St. traffic will be routed south on the West Outer Road to MO Route 150, then back to 140th St. via White Ave and the East Outer Road.

I-49 will remain open with the exception of a few weekends for the demolition of the bridge and setting of girders. Additionally, there will be lane restrictions on I-49 for the construction of retaining walls and end bents.
