ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – After the Memorial Day holiday, a pavement improvement and flood remediation project on U.S. Route 159 will close Holt County Route 111 and narrow U.S. Route 159.

Below is the planned schedule of work, weather permitting:

• Route 111 will be closed from U.S. Route 159 to just north of the railroad crossing. Motorists will need to seek an alternate route.

Also scheduled to begin after the Memorial Day holiday is the rehabilitation of the Big Lake Overflow Bridge on U.S. Route 159. The roadway will be narrowed to one lane with a 13-foot width restriction at the bridge through July. Temporary traffic signals will be in place to direct motorists through the work zone. The Missouri Department of Transportation has contracted with Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. for the bridge rehabilitation project.

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

The Big Lake Overflow Bridge is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.
