The ramp bridge from eastbound Interstate 70 to southbound Interstate 35 will reopen Tuesday, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
The 1967 ramp was closed April 14 for emergency repairs. A deteriorated section was replaced, requiring 1,416 new bolts and 7,500 pounds of additional steel. The ramp bridge is normally used by 4,000 to 5,000 vehicles a day.
Inspectors next week will take a look at the Broadway Bridge. That will require closure of one of the southbound lanes from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, July 6-7, and one of the northbound lanes from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, July 8-9. Motorists should expect delays. The routine inspection is conducted every two years.
