MoDOT ordered the immediate closure of Route BB’s bridge between Missouri Route 13 and Greene County Route Z.
An inspection discovered deteriorating conditions that required immediate closure of the bridge that was built in 1939.
Crews are beginning the process of the best method for repairs. MoDOT hopes to have the bridge repairs and reopened by December 31, pending weather and scheduling delays.
Entrances on either side of the bridge will still be available, but no vehicles will be able to cross the bridge during repair work.
There will be no marked detour, but signs will alert drivers to the bridge closure.
