KANSAS CITY - An expansion joint on the bridge from northbound Route 169 to Richards Road to reach the Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport has reportedly came loose overnight requiring the Missouri Department of Transportation to temporarily close the ramp. Crews are working through the morning to make needed, temporary repairs and expect to reopen the ramp by mid-day.
