The Grand Boulevard viaduct over Interstate 670 was closed Friday morning in downtown Kansas City. An emergency inspection prompted the closing of the bridge. Missouri Department of Transportation officials said the span, 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.
