Greenfield – Area residents are invited to learn more about a project to rehabilitate two bridges on U.S. Route 160 over Turnback Creek and Lynne Branch at an open house scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 11, in Greenfield, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
The meeting is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Greenfield Junior High School cafeteria, 410 College Street. The meeting will be come-and-go style with NO formal presentation. Attendees are welcome to show up at any time during the meeting.
MoDOT representatives will be on hand to answer questions about the construction timeline and traffic impacts during the bridge projects.
Those unable to attend the public meeting can visit www.modot.org/southwest and view information about the project.
The bridges are located approximately four miles east of Greenfield.
The project includes replacing the decks (driving surfaces), installing new bridge walls and guardrail on both bridges.
The bridges will be CLOSED one at a time. Route 160 will be CLOSED at each bridge during construction with traffic detoured over Dade County Route O. Drivers will have access to entrances on either side of the bridges, but will not be able to travel over the bridges during construction.
The total estimated cost of the projects is $2.5 million.
Both bridges were built in 1967 and are experiencing severe deterioration. Approximately 970 vehicles cross the bridges each day.
