Route 190 now open west of Chillicothe at Thompson River Bridge project

CHILLICOTHE, Mo. – The Thompson River Bridge on Route 190 in Livingston County is now open to one-lane traffic. The bridge has been closed since Sunday, Nov. 8 and was scheduled to reopen at noon today, but crews were able to open the bridge to all traffic a few hours early. There is a 10-foot width restriction in place.

Additional work will be needed before the project is complete. Contractors plan to have the bridge open to two-way traffic in early to mid-December. As with all projects, schedules are subject to change.

The project to replace the bridge deck over the Grand River, led by contractors from Comanche Construction, Inc., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, has been active since early March on Route 190 at the Thompson River Bridge just west of Chillicothe. This bridge is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.

Please remember that all work zones are NO PHONE zones. Buckle up. Phone Down. Arrive alive. Drivers are urged to stay alert and pay attention to all roadway signing and barricades.
