A Missouri Department of Transportation crew will inspect and repair the Mississippi River bridge at Cape Girardeau next week, weather permitting.
The bridge will be reduced to one lane while pavement repairs are made, MoDOT officials said. The repairs are scheduled from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
The winter weather has damaged the pavement, creating rough spots, officials said.
While here, the crew also will inspect the aging span as part of a MoDOT directive to reinspect all state-maintained bridges over the Missouri and Mississippi rivers to look for possible damage caused by colder-than-normal temperatures, officials said.
