Ramp From Westbound U.S. Route 36 to Stockyards Expressway Open Again

The Missouri Department of Transportation has announced a much used highway interchange ramp has opened to the motoring public.

Mo-Dot says the Buchanan County U.S. Route 36 westbound ramps to Missouri Route 759 (Stockyards Expressway) is once again open. Contractors from Comanche Construction Inc., were able to reopen the ramp Wednesday, ahead of schedule.

The ramp from Stockyards Expressway to westbound U.S. Route 36 remains closed as part of the rehabilitation of the U.S. Route 36 Pony Express Bridges over the Missouri River.

The rehabilitation project is expected to be complete on, or before December 1.

Both east and westbound U.S. Route 36 traffic over the bridge remains narrowed to one lane.
