Weather permitting, MODOT crews will be working on the Salt River Bridge on US 61 near Route O on August 26 and 27. This stretch of highway is between Hannibal and New London.

According to MoDOT:

Crews will be working in the northbound driving lane on Monday and the passing lane on Tuesday. Traffic will remain one lane overnight allow adequate drying time for the concrete. Minimal delays should be expected. Please use extra caution while traveling through the work zone area and allow extra time to your destination."

Please slow down when you see road work in that area, or any area where MoDOT is working on the roads. They have a very dangerous job trying to make the roads safe and smooth for us. Slow down and use extra caution while traveling through the work zone and allow extra time to your destination.
