The Highway 5 bridge at Soap Creek will be closed for complete replacement for the next several weeks. Traffic is detouring around the bridge on Route 135 and Route J. Bob Lynch from MoDOT talked on yesterday’s Ozarks This Morning about the changes motorists will see in the area.
Lynch says the goal is to have the project complete by mid-November.
MoDOT asks that tractor trailers consider using 54 or 65 to avoid the detour area completely.
