Bridge Repairs to Again Close Route C in Randolph CountyExpect Temporary Traffic Impacts on U.S. Route 24

August 31, 2022

HANNIBAL – Weather permitting, September 6, work will resume on a bridge repair project located on Randolph County Route C, over U.S. Route 24, 3.6 miles east of Missouri Route 3, near Huntsville. The bridge at this location will be closed to traffic beginning September 6; however, all ramps at this location will remain open.

“Crews have completed the repair work to a girder which was hit and damaged last fall and will now finish with bridge painting operations" said MoDOT Area Engineer Jeff Kroner. “Traffic will not be allowed to cross the bridge while work is being completed, therefore, motorists will need to use alternate routes for some specific traffic movements. Eastbound U.S. 24 traffic and Route C traffic south of the bridge will be able to access ramps to the south only. Likewise, westbound U.S. 24 traffic and Route C traffic north of the bridge will be able to utilize ramps located north of the bridge only. While remaining work is being completed, traffic on U.S. 24 will not be able to travel under this structure but will be rerouted over the ramps," explained Kroner. The project is estimated to be completed by early September.
