CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Crews will be working to replace the Route 61 bridge over Ramsey Creek starting Tuesday, May 10.
Five 130 foot bridge beams will be taken to the site on southbound Kingshighway from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Southbound Route 61/Kingshighway will be closed during construction from Silver Springs South to Route 74 West.
The project is expected to be finished in mid-July.
According to Southeast Regional Field Engineer Andy Meyer, the southbound Fruitland rest area will be closed from 12 p.m. on May 9 to 12 p.m. on May 10 because that is where the beams will arrive.
Meyer said the closure is necessary because of the size and number of beams needed to be transported.
