MARYVILLE, Mo. — The project to replace four bridges on State Highway 46 west of Maryville (Big Slough, Florida Creek, Stream and White Cloud Creek bridges) is scheduled to begin this month.
According to a Missouri Department of Transportation news release, these bridges are included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which plans to repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.
Contractors from Boone Construction Co., working with MoDOT, plan to close the White Cloud Creek bridge, east of State Route AB, on Monday, July 13.
Crews then plan to close the Stream Bridge, just west of Route AB, on Monday, July 27. Replacement of the Stream Bridge is expected to be complete in late September, while White Cloud Creek Bridge is planned to reopen in early October. Highway 46 will be closed both east and west of Route AB during this time.
Once work is completed on the White Cloud Creek and Stream bridges, crews will then close and begin the replacements of the Florida Creek Bridge, located west of Route AB, and Big Slough Creek Bridge, located between Maryville and Route AB.
The news release notes that during the replacement of all four bridges, motorists should utilize the signed detour on U.S. Highway 71, U.S. Highway 136, and State Highway 113 or Route AB to travel around the closures. MoDOT is urging drivers to stay alert and pay attention to all roadway signing and barricades.
