Public Invited to Learn More About Bridge Closures in Area

HANNIBAL - The public is invited to stop by the Knox County High School on Highway 6 just east of Edina on Friday, February 17 between 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. during the high school basketball games to learn more about upcoming bridge work in the area. The bridges in Knox County that will be replaced this year include Route E at South Fabius River, Route M over Middle Fabius River, and Route 15 at North Fork Fabius River. The Route E bridge replacement will begin on Monday, February 20, and the road will be closed during construction. There are two other bridges in the area that will be replaced this summer, and they include Route M over the Middle Fabius River and Route 15 nust north of Edina over the N. Fork Fabius River.

"The Route E bridge, just south of Newark, is one of the first ones this year we are working on, and it should reopen within 54 days," said MoDOT's Northeast District Construction and Materials Engineer Macy Rodenbaugh. "We will have more information available at the community briefing, and everything we know right now is posted on our web pages at modot.org/northeast," Rodenbaugh explained. "We have met with elected officials such as legislators and county commissioners to explain more details and to answer questions about the Safe and Sound Bridge Program, and we will continue to get the messages out there through media," he said.

The 54 year old bridge is being replaced under MoDOT's Safe and Sound Bridge Program, which will improve 802 bridges across the state. Northeast Missouri has about 80 bridges on the program, and there are only 24 left to complete. "Most of these bridges are on smaller roads with low traffic volume, and the closure is short, yet we know it will be inconvenient to some," Rodenbaugh continued.

MoDOT encourages those interested in this project and others to go to the website for more details or call the customer service center toll-free at 1-888-275-6636.
