Ash Grove – A recent inspection of the U.S. Route 160 culvert over Branch of Sac River in Ash Grove (Boone Street) revealed deteriorating conditions prompting an immediate need to place weight limits on the culvert, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
All vehicles will be limited to 26 tons.
The legal maximum weight limit for vehicles in Missouri is 40 tons.
The bridge was built in 1929 and carries approximately 2,400 vehicles a day.
MoDOT is considering options for rehabilitating or replacing the bridge in the next several years.
