A last minute trip to Branson could mean additional travel time if you’re using U.S. 65 South.
MoDOT announced that bridge work over Bear Creek, around Mile Marker 20, will close one lane of the bridge around the clock starting Monday.
The bridge will be reduced to one lane through December 27.
The MoDOT crews will be working under the bridge to repair components and due to the nature of the repairs one lane will need to be closed for safety reasons. One southbound lane will be open at all times, but the closure could cause traffic backups.
Drivers are urged to take alternate routes into Branson, including using U.S. 160 from Nixa.
