The Missouri Department of Transportation will close the northbound lanes of Route 69 between East Heartland Drive and Chandler Road to accommodate replacement of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad just north of Liberty as part of the Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program.
Beginning Friday afternoon, April 6, northbound traffic will be redirected to one lane to bypass the road closure. Motorists will be placed into a head-to-head traffic configuration on the southbound side of Route 69. Northbound traffic will be reduced to a single lane at the signal on East Heartland Drive. Northbound traffic will cross back into northbound lanes at the newly constructed bypass near Chandler Road.
