REMINDER: Holt County Route B to close tomorrow as part of bridge deck replacement project

St. Joseph, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Transportation reminds drivers that the bridge on Holt County Route B over Interstate 29 will close tomorrow, April 15, for a bridge deck replacement project. Crews from Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. will close the route to all traffic tomorrow morning. The roadway is expected to remain closed through July 2021. This project is included in Gov.
