Route VV to close at Little Flat Creek Bridge
Bridge replacement to be completed in December
Barry County Route VV at Little Flat Creek north of McDowell will close the week of Aug. 6 to allow contractor crews to replace the aging bridge, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
Route VV at Little Flat Creek could remain closed until mid-December. While crews are replacing the bridge, drivers must find an alternate route around the project. No formal signed detour is planned.
Drivers will have access to driveways and other entrances on either side of the bridge, but will not be able to travel through the work zone.
The new bridge will be 24 feet wide. The existing bridge is 20 feet wide and was built in 1958.
The prime contractor for the project is Hartman and Company of Springfield. The project completion date is Dec. 15, and the estimated total project cost is $836,000.
