Two new bridges will be a part of a Missouri Highway 79 upgrade starting this week. Pike County residents and Missouri Route 79 drivers can look forward to new bridges this year. Noix Creek and Buffalo Creek Bridges, both south of Louisiana on Missouri Route 79, will be replaced with construction beginning tentatively this Wednesday, July 5. Route 79 will have closures during construction, but drivers will still be able to access all parts of it by using the detours.

“We expect the road to be closed up to 80 days at each bridge, with the Noix Creek Bridge expected to close a few weeks earlier than the Buffalo Creek Bridge. The Noix Creek Bridge will be completed and Route 79 reopened at that location while work continues on the Buffalo Creek Bridge.

In order for both bridges to be replaced, Route 79 will be closed at one or both of the locations beginning in late June and possibly lasting until November 1st,” said MoDOT Area Engineer Brian Haeffner.
