Lewis Creek Bridge Replacement On Linn County Route 139 Begins Monday

The replacement of the Route 139 bridge in Linn County will begin Monday.  The replacement of the 88-year-old Lewis Creek Bridge on Linn County Route 139, approximately 1 mile north of Meadville, was rescheduled as the contractor faced several weather-related delays, that pushed back the completion of the Smokey Branch Bridge on Linn County Route B.

The contractor plans to close the Route 139 bridge over Lewis Creek to all traffic on Monday. It will remain closed through early June 2022. During the closure, motorists must use an alternate route.

The bridge is being replaced under the Fixing Access to Rural Missouri (FARM) Bridge Program.
