MoDOT will be replacing various bridges along U.S. Route 24 near Buckner, MO. Four westbound bridges on the west side of Buckner, as well as the eastbound bridge over the railroad on the east side of Buckner will be replaced. These bridges are nearing the end of their service life and must be replaced.
These bridges are included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.
Westbound traffic will be moved over to the eastbound lanes resulting in two-way traffic during construction of the bridges on the west side of Buckner. Eastbound traffic will be moved over to the westbound lanes resulting in two-way traffic during the construction of the railroad bridge on the east side of Buckner.
