NOW CLOSED: Castile Creek Bridge on U.S. Route 169 south of Gower

GOWER, Mo. – The Castile Creek Bridge, located just south of Gower on U.S. Route 169, closed to all traffic around noon today. The road will remain closed through September for a bridge replacement project.

The project to bring the 64-year-old Clinton County bridge up to current standards will be led by contractors from L.G. Barcus and Sons, Inc., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation. During the closure, motorists will be directed over a signed detour on Routes 116 and E. Commercial truck traffic will be directed to use Interstate 29 and Route 92.

As with all construction, work is weather permitting and schedules are subject to change.
