Missouri Department of Transportation workers used pylons and signs to close the Grand Boulevard Bridge over Interstate 670 Friday morning in downtown Kansas City. An emergency inspection prompted the closing of the bridge. MoDOT officials said in a news release that the bridge, south of the Sprint Center, had last passed inspection in September, but was “exhibiting signs of stress fractures and closed for further inspection and possible repairs.” It is uncertain when the bridge will reopen.
