Construction will begin this fall and the new bridge will open in December 2016. Traffic will remain open in both directions during construction.
The Missouri and Kansas departments of transportation are splitting the $79 million cost to replace the existing Fairfax and Platte Purchase bridges, built in 1933 and 1957, respectively.
