JACKSON COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Transportation will OPEN the U.S. 24 Bridge over Delaware St. on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. The same day, all four ramps to Delaware St. from U.S. 24 will be CLOSED until approximately June 15 for resurfacing work. All necessary detours currently in place at the project site will remain the same. For more details about this project, visit our website. All work is weather permitting.
This the first bridge of 27 Kansas City District bridges that is part of Missouri Gov. Parson's $351 millionFocus on Bridges program, which will replace 250 bridges across the state.
The U.S. 24 Bridge over Delaware St. in Independence closed for replacement in the fall of 2019. The goal of this project included replacing the existing structure economically, minimizing traffic impacts along U.S. 24, and providing context-sensitive aesthetic enhancements all while staying within the existing right-of-way footprint.
Please remember that all work zones are NO PHONE zones. Buckle up. Phone down. Arrive Alive. Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
