Sullivan County Bridge On Route 139 To Re-Open Friday
The Route 139 Bridge in Sullivan County will re-open this Friday. The Missouri Department of Transportation announced the Newtown Branch Bridge, which has been closed for replacement since January will re-open on Friday.
A resurfacing project for Route 139 in the same area, which was held over from 2018, is scheduled to resume Monday, April 15th. Contractors from Norris Asphalt Paving, working with MoDOT, will restart the project near Newtown to just south of Harris.
Motorists should be alert and watch for roadway signs and workers. A pilot car will be used to guide the vehicles through the work zone. Crews will work daylight hours, five days per week. Some work may occur on weekends, if necessary. The contractor plans to have all work completed by May 1st.
