The scheduled closure of the Cook Road Bridge over Interstate 29 in Saint Joseph now includes updated bridge deck repairs and reduced closure time.
Crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation plan to complete concrete replacements on the bridge’s driving surface in addition to core drilling and materials testing, beginning Monday, August 14, with all work now expected to be complete by Friday, August 18.
MoDOT says the roadway will close to all traffic beginning August 14 at 7 a.m. and remain closed overnight through Tuesday, August 15, at 5 p.m.
From August 16 to 18, MoDOT says the roadway will close to all traffic daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A project to replace the bridge’s deck will go out for contractor bidding in February.
Motorists will need to seek an alternate route during this time.
All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
