U.S. 60 in Stoddard County to be reduced for bridge work

Sunday, March 4, 2012

SIKESTON, Mo. -- Work to replace the deck of the U.S. 60 bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad tracks in Stoddard County is expected to begin March 26, weather permitting. The bridge is east of Highway 25 near Dexter, Mo. The project won't involve a road closure due to the traffic volume in the area. Westbound traffic will be diverted onto the eastbound lanes from County Road 517 to County Road 531. A 16-foot width restriction will be in place. The project is expected to be completed in late August.

Signs and warning devices will be in place as work is underway. Motorists are urged to use caution while traveling near the area.
