KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Road authorities completed an urgent repair to a bridge on northbound I-35 just before the ramp to Broadway.
The road was reduced to one lane at the north end of the Southwest Trafficway Bridge.
Officials said a steel expansion joint that connects two portions of the bridge became dislodged at 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.
"We had already reduced northbound I-35 in this location to two lanes for construction," MoDOT senior construction inspector Mike Frizzell said. "Further reducing it to one lane is not something we expected to have to do."
