West Locust Creek Bridge On Highway 6 Closes Today
The West Locust Creek Bridge on Highway 6 in Sullivan County will close this morning for replacement. The bridge, west of Route 5 near Humphreys, is expected to be closed until July 25th, as weather permits.
As the work begins, motorists will need to find an alternate route. A marked detour is provided. That detour will direct motorists south from Humphreys, on Route 139, east on Route MM to Browning and north on Route 5.
Truck traffic will continue to be detoured from the east near Kirksville on US 63, south to US 36 west. And from the west near Trenton, south on US 65 to US 36 east.
Because of the delay in starting this project, the bridge replacement at West Yellow Creek Bridge is also delayed. A new start date will be announced.
