MoDOT closed the East Outer Road Bridge over I-49 one mile northwest of Harrisonville Tuesday (Dec. 10) following a routine inspection that showed continued deterioration of a structural element.

The bridge, which connects Rockhaven Road with Peculiar Drive over I-49 northwest of Harrisonville, already is scheduled for bearing rehabilitation and deck replacement in 2016. It carries about 150 vehicles per day.

MoDOT inspectors are at the bridge evaluating the structure to determine the viability of making interim repairs now or letting the planned construction contract far sooner than originally scheduled. Even interim repairs, if possible, are expected to take days or weeks.
