Grundy County Route W Bridge To Be Replaced

The Missouri Department of Transportation has announced another northern Missouri bridge is set to be replaced under the FARM (Fixing Access to Rural Missouri) Bridge Program.

The Grundy County Route W bridge over Gees Creek, south of Route F, is scheduled to close on Monday, November 14 for construction. The roadway is scheduled to remain closed through early April 2023.

The FARM Bridge Program aims to replace deficient bridges on low-volume routes that are weight-restricted, in poor condition, on timber pile, and a one-lane but carry two-way traffic. The average annual traffic volume on the Route W bridge is 250, and the bridge was built in 1952.

There is no posted detour for this closure but motorists will still need to use an alternate route.
