The Buck O'Neil Bridge is again closing for a weekend so workers can begin another phase in a repair project.  

The Missouri Department of Transportation has been working to repair the old Broadway Bridge for months. All the southbound lanes have been closed for repairs and the northbound lanes have remained open, for the most part. 

Workers are replacing the medians this weekend and they will need the bridge for themselves.

"All the southbound lanes have been closed for a while, and with the closure of the northbound lanes, this will be a complete closure for this weekend," said Markl Johnson, MoDOT spokesman. "Folks will need to find an alternate route until we reopen later Sunday."

The bridge is scheduled to close at 7 p.m. Friday and reopen at 6 p.m. Sunday. 

The whole project is set to wrap up by December first.
