The final blast of the Fairfax bridge is scheduled at 9 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 29, according to the Missouri and Kansas departments of transportation.
Crews are scheduled to detonate the northern portion of the truss from the north bank to the Missouri levee, according to a spokesman.
Unlike the previous two blasts, this demolition cannot be seen from public access points, and no public viewing will be available, according to officials.
Northbound and southbound U.S. 69 will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to accommodate the blast.
The current U.S. 69 Highway Bridge over the Missouri River is being replaced. A new structure will be built in its place and will include multiple lanes and bike and pedestrian access, according to the department of transportation. It will open to traffic in December 2016.
The project is shared by the Kansas Department of Transportation and Missouri Department of Transportation.
