GENTRY, Mo. – Plans are underway to replace the decks of two Northwest Missouri bridges. The Missouri Department of Transportation will host both an online and phone-in public meeting to gather community feedback regarding the planned deck replacements of the U.S. Route 169 Middle Fork of the Grand River Bridge in Gentry County and Route EE Panther Creek Bridge in Harrison County. The projects are currently scheduled to be let for contractor bidding in October. These bridges are included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.
