SALINE COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Transportation will close Route 122 at Muddy Creek for bridge replacement beginning Monday, July 6.
Motorists will need to find an alternative route. The road will reopen in mid-October. All work is weather dependent.
This bridge project is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.
Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
