ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – A bridge rehabilitation project on Interstate 29 in Holt County over U.S. Route 59 (Exit 92 at Craig) is nearing completion. The Missouri Department of Transportation contracted with Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. to replace the deck of the I-29 bridges over U.S. Route 59. Crews began work in late March and are on target to complete the project in early August.
Guardrail installation is scheduled for early next week, Aug. 1- 2. When the guardrail is complete, both I-29 and U.S. Route 59 under the bridge should reopen to all traffic.
All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
