Crews with the Missouri Department of Transportation are scheduled to make repairs to the Laclede County Route O bridge over the Gasconade River this week. The routine maintenance procedure will take place this Tuesday, October 12th through Thursday, October 21st. The work will require the closure of the bridge, east of Competition, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. each day. Motorists will need to use an alternate route around the closure area while work takes place. MoDOT appreciates the patience of motorists traveling through the work area. Work is weather permitting and could be delayed.
