Camdenton R-III Transportation Director Gary Cuendet’s suggested the board of education consider closing school during the replacement of the Hurricane Deck Bridge in 2013.
Cuendet says he’s talked with MoDOT’s Regional Director Bob Lynch about the closure, which could run from two to seven days. MoDOT’s moving a new bridge onto the support structure. Lynch also says new entrances at both ends of the bridge could also lengthen the time the Hurricane Deck Bridge will be closed. Cuendet says the district might want to consider, as a worst case, adding some days into the school year to allow the shutdown.
