The third and final section of the Fairfax Bridge over the Missouri River was demolished on Thursday. The bridge connects Platte and Wyandotte counties.
Northbound and southbound traffic on U.S. 69 is expected to be closed until 4 p.m.
The demolition was part of the project replacing the U.S. 69 bridge over the Missouri River.
Traffic will continue over the adjacent Platte Purchase Bridge until a new four-lane bridge with a bike and pedestrian path is opened in late 2016.
Never miss a local story.
