SAVANNAH, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Transportation is reminding drivers that the project to replace the bridge on Route 48 over Agee Creek, east of Rea, will begin next week. Contractors from Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc., working with MoDOT, will begin the replacement of the 88-year-old, structurally deficient bridge on Tuesday, May 26. This bridge is included in Gov.
