Broadway Bridge to close Sunday morning for fundraising run

Drivers should forget about using the Broadway Bridge on Sunday morning –- but should know it’s for a good cause.

The bridge will close for several hours starting at 8 a.m. to allow for the Broadway Bridge Run benefiting the Special Olympics. The bridge will not reopen until the event is completed, which may not be until about noon.

Drivers who need to cross the Missouri River will have to detour to either the Heart of America, Chouteau or Paseo bridges.
