The next step of the Missouri Route 168 bridge replacement project will be to remove the existing bridge/overpass, and to do this, all lanes of U.S. Route 61/24 will be closed for about 24 hours overnight from 1 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 6 through 1 a.m. Monday, Aug. 7.

After 1 a.m. Aug. 7, U.S. Route 61 will have at least one lane open to traffic in each direction at the overpass throughout the project.

U.S. Route 61 traffic is being detoured onto U.S. Route 24 to and from Quincy, Ill., and I-72 at Hannibal.
