Northbound I-35 in Harrison County to Close South of Bethany Tonight

Northbound I-35 drivers will notice a closure at the Pole Cat Creek bridge in Harrison County tonight.

The Missouri Department of Transportation has announced northbound Interstate 35 will close overnight tonight for the placement of barriers. Crews from Widel, Inc., working with the Mo-Dot, will close the northbound lanes of the interstate at the bridge over Pole Cat Creek, south of Bethany, from 8 p.m. tonight through 9 a.m. Friday, May 13.

During the closure, drivers will be detoured off northbound I-35 at Exit 88 to Route 13, north to U.S. Route 136, to U.S. Route 169, to Spur 69 where they will continue east to Exit 93 where they will rejoin I-35.

This bridge is included in Governor Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which aims to repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.

All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
