Bridge deck replacement on Big Creek and Shootman Creek will begin on September 6th. The Missouri Department of Transportation says the projects on County Road UU, southwest of Bosworth, between County Roads 291 and 230, will close the bridges until late December.
Planned improvements will widen both bridges to 22 feet to accommodate two-way traffic and bring their railings up to current standards. In addition, the superstructure of the Big Creek Bridge will be strengthened, where necessary, to remove the load posting.
During the closure, motorists will need to use an alternate route.
