STODDARD COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - The Missouri Department of Transportation says construction is underway to replace two bridges on eastbound Route 60.
According to MoDOT, work to replace a third bridge located near the Stoddard/New Madrid County line on westbound Route 60 will start Monday, August 22, weather permitting.
As work is underway, MoDOT says traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Route 51 to Route 61 as necessary. A 16-foot width restriction will also be in place. The project is expected to be finished in mid-October.
Improvements to the bridges will be completed through the Safe and Sound Bridge Improvement Program.
