Design builder announced for Buck O'Neil Bridge
The Missouri Highways & Transportation Commission has selected Massman-Clarkson, A Joint Venture as the design-build contractor to replace the Buck O’Neil Bridge in Kansas City.

The contractor competed against two other design-build teams (American Bridge and Taylor-Ames), both of whom had local and national recognition. Massman-Clarkson, A Joint Venture's dynamic project proposal demonstrated a design that would be the best value for the City of Kansas City, which made them the top choice.

Construction is anticipated to begin in fall of 2021 and be complete by late fall of 2024.
