U.S. 60 reduced for bridge replacement
Wednesday, April 4, 2012
SIKESTON, Mo. -- Work to replace the U.S. 60 bridge over Little River Drainage Ditch No. 37 in Stoddard County is expected to begin Monday, weather permitting. The bridge is near Morehouse, 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 Route AH to Route E in New Madrid County. In addition to reducing traffic to one lane in each direction, an 11-foot width restriction will be in place. Completion is anticipated in mid-June. Signs and warning devices will be in place as improvements are underway.
