Southbound U.S. 169 near downtown down to one lane

Southbound U.S. 169 just north of downtown will be reduced to one lane throughout most of the weekend starting today.

The work on the bridge over Missouri 9 just north of the downtown airport will start at 5 this morning and run through 5 a.m. Monday. Highway crews also will close the ramp from eastbound Missouri 9 to southbound 169 at 6 a.m. Sunday until the work is finished.

Traffic will be detoured to Briarcliff to access southbound Route 169.
