Goodwin Hollow Bridge scheduled to close

Missouri Route 64 near Lebanon is set to close in early June to replace the Goodwin Hollow Creek Bridge. Construction crews working with the Missouri Department of Transportation plan to close the bridge to all traffic beginning on Monday, June 10. Tune in to Community Ties on KBNN AM 750 Friday May 31st at 9:05 for additional information from Central District Area Engineer Danny Roeger.

Built in 1931, the bridge is narrower than the existing roadway and the deck and barriers are showing signs it is nearing the end of its life cycle. The new structure will be wider with updated bridge barriers and a curve east of the bridge will be realigned to improve safety.

The road will be closed for the duration of construction and, by contract, will reopen by Dec. 1, 2024, or the contractor may be subject to liquidated damages. A signed detour will direct motorists around the closure via Routes 32, P, and K. Those headed to Bennett Spring State Park will be directed to use Route 32 to Route OO.
