KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Downtown Loop will be challenging to navigate this weekend, as a portion of it will be closed to traffic.

The Buck O'Neil Bridge will remain open, but several ramp closures on the north and west sides of the loop will make it hard to get to and from the bridge.

The closures begin at 12:01 a.m. Saturday and last until 11:30 p.m. Sunday.

MoDOT will be drilling holes beneath the surface to document the type of terrain.

In addition, MoDOT will perform joint replacement work on the bridge, brush and tree cutting along the bridge and Interstate 35, drain cleaning and graffiti removal.

To access The Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport from south of the Missouri River, motorists can take Interstate 29 northbound to Route 169 southbound.
