Crews will be replacing the Missouri Route 127 bridge over Basin Fork Creek (south of Green Ridge) beginning on Tuesday, Aug. 1, and the project is scheduled to last until the end of October.

Motorists will need to seek alternate routes during the closure. Detour routes for the closure are Missouri Route 52 and Route B. MO Route 52 is currently closed for a bridge replacement at South Flat Creek. MO Route 52 will be open to traffic prior to the closure of MO Route 127. All work is weather permitting. Additional details about this project can be found here.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short-term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
