The bridge over Honey Creek just south of Gallatin on Highway 13 opened Friday evening. MoDOT closed the bridge in mid-May for a replacement project.
Contractors from L.G. Barcus and Sons have been working with the Missouri Department of Transportation to complete the bridge replacement project and plan to reopen the bridge this evening, even though there is still work to be done
Due to forecasted weather, crews made the decision to reopen the roadway to traffic while work continues on the bridge over the next two weeks. Motorists may experience occasional lane drops and traffic delays due to the ongoing work.
Though the roadway has reopened, motorists are urged to continue to use caution, and eliminate distractions. Workers and machinery will still be on the roadsides, close to the roadway, completing parts of the project.
