Written by on April 14, 2023

HANNIBAL – Weather permitting, Monday, May 1,  Missouri Route 15  is scheduled to close as work begins on the bridge replacement project located over North Fork Wyaconda River, 0.4 miles south of Route EE near Memphis, in Scotland County. 

Completion of the new bridge is scheduled for late July. During construction, traffic will be directed around the closure on a signed detour over  U.S. Route 136 to U. S. Route 63.

Included in the contract is an additional bridge replacement, located on U.S. Route 136 over North Fork Middle Fabius River, 1.1 miles east of Route C near Lancaster in Schuyler County.  This project will begin later this summer.

Bleigh Construction Company was awarded the contract last year in the amount of $2,263,616.
