Kansas City said MoDOT needs to shut down the lanes to do maintenance work on street lights.

The city expects some traffic delays and encourages drivers to plan accordingly, or perhaps use a different bridge during that time period. 

Suggested routes include the Heart of America or Kit Bond Bridge to cross the Missouri River.
