NOW OPEN: I-229 Double-Decker Bridge

St. Joseph, Mo. – The Interstate 229 Double-Decker Bridge in St. Joseph is now open including all on/off ramps. Crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation completed emergency and regularly scheduled maintenance work today, Aug. 11.

On Friday, July 28, the northbound lanes of I-229 between the Edmond and Francis Street ramps were closed due to a pavement blow up. In an effort to reduce the overall closure time of the bridge, crews moved forward the yearly bridge closure for maintenance which closed I-229 from Highland Avenue to U.S. Route 36 on Monday, Aug. 7.
