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. Construction is expected to begin Sept. 7, weather permitting. Contractor crews will first construct four bridges on new alignments. During this time, Route EE will remain open, and traffic will continue to utilize the existing structures over Drainage Ditches 1, 251, 258 and 259.It will be necessary to close Route EE as the new bridges are tied-into the existing pavement and the final bridge over Drainage Ditch 65 is constructed. Completing the tie-ins and constructing the final bridge simultaneously will minimize the duration of the road closure. A signed detour will be in place during the road closure. Completion of the five bridges is anticipated by July 31, 2022. Learn more >
