Route 145 in Mercer County closed due to culvert failure

Road Closed

Route 145 in Mercer County is now closed due to a culvert failure near Lake Paho.

Crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation closed Route 145 between Route B and U.S. Route 136 west of Princeton Thursday morning. Due to the culvert’s location in a conservation area with sensitive environmental issues, it may take some time before crews are able to replace the culvert and reopen the roadway.

Motorists will need to use an alternate route during the closure.
