If you take Mt. Vernon near Kansas Expressway in the morning, you’ll be finding an alternate route until the leaves start changing.
The City of Springfield announced the closure of Mt. Vernon Street just west of Kansas Expressway to replace a bridge.
The Mt. Vernon Bridge Replacement Project will start on Wednesday, July 3, and will continue for at least three months.
The project is funded through the federal On-System Bridge Program with additional funds from the Missouri Department of Transportation.
