Gentry County Route T Bridge Over Brushy Creek To Be Replaced

The Missouri Department of Transportation has announced the Gentry County Route T bridge over Brushy Creek is the next bridge scheduled for replacement under the FARM (Fixing Access to Rural Missouri) Bridge Program.

The bridge, located east of Route A, and west of the city of McFall, is scheduled to close Tuesday, May 30 for construction. The bridge is expected to remain closed though early October.

The Brushy Creek Bridge was built in 1932 and has a traffic volume of about 36 vehicles per day.

The Brushy Creek Bridge is one of 31 weight-restricted, poor condition bridges in northern Missouri being replaced under the federally-funded FARM program. The program is replacing deficient bridges on low-volume routes that are weight-restricted, in poor condition, on timber pile, and/or are one-lane but carry two-way traffic.

There is no posted detour on most of these projects.

The full list of bridges to be replaced can be found on the FARM Bridge program web page.
