The planned detour for the closing of US 65, south of Chillicothe, on August 12th has changed due to concerns for a bridge. The Missouri Department of Transportation says the revised detour for southbound traffic is from US 65 – west on US 36 to Route D, South to Route DD, East to Route C, continue East to Route Z and North to US 65. For northbound traffic, it would be the opposite.
Route C, South of Utica will be open to only local residents and businesses. MoDOT is concerned about an increased traffic load damaging the bridge on Route C.
PLEASE NOTE: Route Z at the south (in Carroll County) is closed due to road damages from earlier this spring.
