Route EE: Construction of five bridges on Route EE in Pemiscot County will kick off in early September. The bridges slated for replacement are located over Drainage Ditches 1, 251, 258, 259 and 65 near Peach Orchard, Missouri. During the first phase of construction, Route EE remained open, and traffic continued to utilize the existing structures over Drainage Ditches 1, 251, 258 and 259. Beginning Thursday, Oct. 6, Route EE will be closed from Route A to County Road 229. This closure is necessary as the new bridges are tied-into the existing pavement and the final bridge over Drainage Ditch 65 is constructed. Completion is anticipated Saturday, Dec. 31. The bridges are part of the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Bootheel Bridge Bundle design-build project, which will improve 17 bridges throughout Southeast Missouri. Completion of the Bootheel Bridge Bundle design-build project is anticipated on or before Dec. 31, 2023. The design-build project website is available at https://www.modot.org/bootheel-bridge-bundle.Four of the bridges are also included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state. A total of 13 Focus bridges will be addressed through the Bootheel Bridge Bundle. The work zone will be marked with signs. Motorists are urged to use extreme caution while traveling near the area. Learn more >
