The Buffalo Creek Bridge on Missouri Route 79, south of Louisiana, is now expected to open Wednesday, Nov. 15, depending on the weather.

“We are pouring the bridge’s deck now, and then we have to wait until the concrete reaches the appropriate strength to carry vehicles,” said Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Brian Haeffner.

The Noix Creek Bridge, also located on Missouri Route 79, near Louisiana, recently opened Wednesday, Oct. 18.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience as our contractor works to make the bridge wider and safer,” Haeffner said.

As soon as the bridge is ready to open, information will be distributed publicly.
