Upcoming bridge inspections in area counties may slow traffic

Bridge Work

Bridge inspection crews based in Northwest Missouri work to inspect the bridges in our area. This program of inspection, repair, and maintenance of the more than 10,000 bridges across the state ensures the bridges are kept in the best possible condition for as long as possible for all those that travel across Missouri’s roadways.

Specialized equipment is required for some inspections with crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Central Office traveling around the state conducting in-depth under-bridge inspections throughout the year.  This specialized crew will inspect several bridges in our area in the coming weeks.

During these under-bridge inspections, the work zones may be moving operations and motorists are advised to be alert for work zone signs and extra equipment on the roadways around these bridges and ramps.
