The Christopher Bond Bridge glows red in support of the Kansas City Chiefs

JACKSON COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Transportation does its part to help the Kansas City Chiefs, Run It Back!


On Wednesday, Jan. 13, members of the Lighting Department at MoDOT placed red plexiglass shields on all 40 lights that help illuminate the Christopher S. Bond Bridge over the Missouri River. The process took approximately 40 minutes on each side of the iconic dual-span, cable-stayed bridge.


Each night, beginning at dusk, the Kit Bond Bridge will glow in Chiefs red, as the hometown team defends its 2020 Super Bowl title. 


The bridge is named for Christopher “Kit” Bond, the former Missuri governor and US Senator from Missouri.
