Demolition of the old Interstate 44 Outer Road (Route 66) bridge over the Gasconade River west of Hazelgreen in Laclede County is tentatively scheduled to begin this summer. The bridge, which was closed to traffic in December 2014 due to extensive deterioration, was replaced by a new bridge on the I-44 Outer Road and opened in August 2019.
Comments on the possible impact to Gasconade River traffic due to this project will be accepted at modot.org/lacledecountybridgedemolition or by calling 573-522-5265 through Friday, March 27, 2020.
While a date for that work has not been established, MoDOT will alert the public with updates through signs, news releases and social media once a start date has been determined.
