Route MM to Close West of Hannibal for Bridge Replacement

HANNIBAL - Weather permitting, beginning Monday, February 6, Route MM west of Hannibal will be closed for replacement of the Bear Creek Bridge.

Built in 1924 and once part of US 36, the bridge was probably part of the Pony Express and stagecoach route known as the Hound Dog Trail. "Fortunately, there is a good detour for Route MM on Highway 36," said MoDOT Construction and Materials Engineer Macy Rodenbaugh. The bridge should take about 50 days to replace, and the new bridge will be six-foot wider and will open to traffic later in March.

An informational meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 1 from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. for anyone interested in this project or other transportation issues. The meeting will be held at the Hannibal Clinic; directional signs will be posted.  "The best source of updated information is either by calling our customer service center or going online at modot.org/northeast," Rodenbaugh said.

Road closure signs will be in place notifying motorists of the work. The detour is marked over US 36/24, 61 and Route MM. Some areas of the road will remain open to residential traffic only; all other traffic must take alternate routes during this time. Several notices have been posted through media, schools, email, and close communication the Hannibal Regional Hospital and emergency services. Message boards along the road will be set up in advance of the closure.

For more information about this bridge or others in the Safe and Sound Bridge Program, contact MoDOT's customer service center at 1-888 ASK MODOT or visit us online at www.modot.org/northeast.
