8th Street Bridge over I-70 closed until mid-August

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Transportation has closed the 8th Street Bridge over Interstate 70 until about mid-August for bridge repairs. 

MoDOT said the closure is part of a bridge repair project along I-70 that also includes the 9th Street, 10th Street, and Chestnut Avenue bridges over I-70. 

Motorists must find an alternate route or use the suggested detour by heading north and using Admiral Boulevard to go around the closure.
