U.S. Route 59 to close for bridge replacement

MOUND CITY, Mo. – The bridge on U.S. Route 59 over Davis Creek on the east edge of Mound City is scheduled for replacement. Contractors from Chester Bross Construction Company of Palmyra, working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, will close the bridge to all traffic the morning of March 12, 2018. They plan to reopen the bridge on or about June 7, 2018. A signed detour is not planned at this time and motorists will need to seek an alternate route for the duration of the work.

The current bridge was built in 1929 and carries more than 700 cars each day over its narrow span. The new bridge will be along the same alignment as the old bridge, but will include safety shoulders and will be about four feet wider than the current bridge.

Information about this project, including timelines, answers to frequently asked questions, and an opportunity to sign up for project-specific updates via email can be found at http://www.modot.org/northwest/major_projects/Holt59DavisCreek/.

All work is weather permitting and schedules are subject to change. MoDOT encourages all motorists to slow down, buckle up, eliminate distractions and drive safely to ensure everyone is able to Arrive Alive.
