Crews have temporarily closed northbound and southbound lanes of U.S. 69 over the Missouri River.
The highway, which connects Platte and Wyandotte counties, will be closed from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday so bridge girders can be delivered and lifted into place.
The work is part of replacing the Platte Purchase and Fairfax bridges over the Missouri River. A new bridge is being built and is expected to be open in December 2016.
