FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 30, 2010

Red Bridge night closures start July 6

Repairs on the old Red Bridge over the Blue River will close a portion of Red Bridge Road between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. for two weeks starting Tuesday, July 6.

During the closure, eastbound traffic on Red Bridge Road will detour south on Holmes Road to Blue Ridge Boulevard, driving north on Blue River Road to reach Red Bridge Road. Westbound traffic on Red Bridge Road will detour south on Blue River Road to Blue Ridge Boulevard, driving north on Holmes Road to reach Red Bridge Road.

The two year construction project will improve Red Bridge Road between Holmes Road and Blue River Road, adding curbs, sidewalks and other amenities to the south Kansas City arterial. In addition, the project will replace the current Red Bridge over the Blue River with a new structure more suited to the traffic needs of the area. The current Red Bridge will become a pedestrian and bicycle bridge on the nearby Minor Park fitness trail.

Media inquiries and other requests for more information about this closure or the Red Bridge Road construction project should be directed to Sean Demory, communications manager for the Capital Projects Office, 816-513-0059.
