MoDOT has announced the immediate closure of the U.S. 160 bridge over Beaver Creek near Kissee Mills because the bridge is too dangerous for traffic.
Engineers say an inspection of the bridge showed significant deterioration in the support components of the bridge.
MoDOT has closed the bridge until further notice as they assess the extent of the damage and make repairs. No timetable is available for the repairs.
Drivers are recommended to use state routes to avoid the bridge closure, including Route 125 and Route 76.
