Regent closed June 23 through August 18
Regent Ave. from Missouri 10 to Garland Ave. will be closed from Tuesday, June 23 through Tuesday, August 18 for work related to the replacement of bridges along Missouri 10, weather permitting.

Bridge reconstruction will close Northland U.S. 69 bridge

Crews will close northbound U.S. 69 over Fishing River on June 8 to replace the bridge, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation. All traffic will be diverted to southbound U.S. 69, which will be one lane each direction for the duration of the project. The replacement is expected to last approximately 180 days. All work is weather dependent. For more information about the project, click here.

Traffic Alert:
Single lane closures of Northbound Route 291 Bridge

The need for emergency repairs will cause Route 291 to be restricted to one lane in each direction at the Missouri River for an unknown time period. This decision was based on findings from a bridge routine inspection.
There may be delays in travel times, however there are existing crossovers north and south of the bridge that allow traffic to be carried in both directions. For more information about this project, click here.
