Missouri has a bridge to sell you. The old Broadway Bridge.
As part of bridge replacement plans across the state, the Missouri Department of Transportation is giving away at least eight old bridges, including Kansas City’s iconic Broadway Bridge which had been renamed the Buck O’Neil Bridge.
All of the bridges are scheduled for replacement as the state grapples with crumbling infrastructure. The department is offering them at no charge to civic groups, other government entities, historical or even private citizens.
But there’s a catch. You have to take it apart. A tough job for most, and costly. Interested parties must submit a proposal describing how they will dismantle and relocate the bridge. That ends up saving the state a wad of dough.
