Emergency Closure On Monroe County Bridge

The Missouri Department of Transportation has closed the bridge over Milligan Creek in Monroe County near Middle Grove due to a sizable hole.

A plate was put over the hole last week, but has grown larger according to MoDOT Area Engineer Brian Untiedt.

Crews will evaluate the bridge next week for the feasibility of repairing the problem.

Untiedt says “the bridge deck is in serious condition and is on Missouri’s statewide transportation improvement program for a full bridge replacement in 2023.”
