Noix Creek Expected to Open By Thursday Morning

HANNIBAL – The Noix Creek Bridge on Missouri Route 79 in Louisiana is now expected to open by Thursday morning.  “The guard rail is the finishing touch, and we can't open it until it is completed," explained Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Brian Haeffner.  While the guard rail was expected to be done before today, there have been contractor delays.  ""Provisions are typically added to contracts to provide  disincentives when a project is not completed on time, and such is the case in this project," Haeffner said.  The Buffalo Creek bridge further south on MO 79 is expected to open in mid-November and is being built by the same contractor as Noix Creek. 

“We appreciate everyone’s patience as our contractor works to make the bridge wider and safer,” Haeffner said.  As soon as the bridge is ready to open, information will be distributed publicly.
