Tarkio River Bridge Back Open to Traffic

A bridge near Fairfax is now back open to traffic.

The Missouri Department of Transportation says the Tarkio River Bridge, on Route J, is back open after crews wrapped up the majority of a bridge replacement project.

The bridge was originally set to reopen to traffic in August, but was delayed due to flooding.

MO-DOT says work is still being done over the next week and single-lane closures will be in-place.

Motorists will be directed across the bridge with the aid of flaggers.
