KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Heading to the Garth Brooks concert at Arrowhead, or Tech N9ne at Power and Light? Even if you’re just running errands this weekend, you may want to avoid driving through downtown this weekend.

Crews will close a portion of I-670 starting at 6 a.m. Saturday morning.

Workers with the Missouri Department of Transportation are replacing the Baltimore Avenue Bridge over I-670. To do that, crews need to close both directions of I-670 between I-70 and I-35 at different times over the weekend.

MoDOT said only one direction of I-670 will be closed at a time.

Here is a look at what will be closed and when the closures will take place:
