Rulo Bridge Inspection Scheduled

MOUND CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Transportation’s employs a program of inspection, repair and maintenance of the more than 10,000 bridges across the state. This program ensures the bridges are kept in the best possible condition for as long as possible for all those that travel across Missouri’s roadways. The Missouri River Bridge on U.S. Route 159 connecting Missouri and Rulo, Nebraska was rebuilt beginning in September 2010 and reopened to the public in September 2013.

Bridges along Missouri’s border are the shared responsibility of Missouri and the neighboring states. The Nebraska Department of Transportation maintains the Rulo bridge and has scheduled an inspection of this bridge with lane closures Tuesday, Aug. 15 through Friday, Aug. 18. The lane closure will remain in place each day from approximately 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. During the work a flagger and pilot car will direct traffic across the bridge. All work is weather permitting and schedules are subject to change.

Motorists are advised to be alert for work zone signs and extra equipment on the roadways during the inspection. Please put down your phone and other distractions so you can give driving your full attention and give the crew plenty of room to safely do their work.
