Putnam County bridge deck replacement project to begin soon

Bridge Closed Sign

The North Blackbird Creek Bridge on Putnam County Route Y will close soon for a bridge deck replacement project.

The Missouri Department of Transportation contracted with Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. to replace the bridge’s deck. This bridge is northeast of Unionville.  Crews plan to close the bridge to all traffic on Monday, March 15, at approximately 8 a.m. The closure is expected to continue through May 2021. A signed detour is planned over U.S. Route 136 and Route 129.

All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
