A bit of good news for Miller County residents. The bridge replacement project on Route 17 over Dog Creek in Miller County is complete. The bridge, located south of Tuscumbia, was opened to traffic yesterday afternoon. Work began in June, and the Missouri Department of Transportation extends its thanks to motorists for their patience while the work took place. The bridge replacement is part of MoDOT’s Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program, which will improve 802 of Missouri’s worst bridges by the end of 2012. Currently, more than 760 of the bridges included in the program have been improved statewide.
