U.S. 69 bridge update
BETWEEN PLATTE AND WYANDOTTE COUNTY

Northbound traffic will be moved to the new US 69 bridge over the Missouri River between Platte County and Wyandotte County on Wednesday, Nov. 2. Once northbound traffic is shifted to one lane on the new bridge, access to Argosy Casino Parkway from U.S. 69 will be closed until the new ramp is constructed. This traffic pattern will allow the last stages of northbound U.S. 69, north and south of the bridge, to be completed. The ramp will reopen in December 2016, weather permitting.

The existing Platte Purchase Bridge will be demolished in stages from November 2016 to March 2017. After demolition is complete, work on the new shared use path for the bridge and bridge approaches can be finished. A ribbon cutting ceremony for the new bridge and shared use path will be held in the spring of 2017.
