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 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.
