Modot helps rename the broadway bridge to the buck o neil bridge

The Buck O'Neil Bridge is a triple arch bridge that spans the Missouri River in Kansas City, Missouri, in the United States. It first opened for traffic September 9, 1956 as the Broadway Bridge. It was built at a cost of $12 million. It was a toll bridge until 1991.

It replaced the Second Hannibal Bridge just to its east which had handled auto traffic on its upper level.

It provides access from downtown Kansas City to the Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport and to the city of Riverside, Missouri. U.S. Route 169, which the bridge carries across the river, never enters North Kansas City, Missouri, but skirts the western border.

On June 24, 2016 the Bridge was officially renamed from the Broadway Bridge to the Buck O'Neil Bridge named after the Kansas City Monarchs player and manager John Jordan "Buck" O'Neil.
