(Brumley)–Motorists will see some traffic impacts on two bridges in the Lake of the Ozarks area as the crossings receive needed repairs and updates in the coming months.
Work is scheduled to begin next week, as a contractor working for the Missouri Department of Transportation, will begin installing guardrails and replacing the deck of the Miller County Route C bridge over Deane Creek, south of Brumley. The bridge will be closed to traffic for up to three months while the work takes place, starting next Monday. Signs and message boards will be in place to alert motorists of the closure. Motorists will be able to utilize Camden County Route A, U. S. Route 54, and Missouri Route 42 as a detour route during the rehabilitation of the Deane Creek bridge. Once the Deane Creek bridge has been rehabilitated, crews will begin to replace the deck of the Camden County Route D bridge over Minnow Brook Creek, southwest of Camdenton. Both bridges are included in Governor Mike Parson’s 351-million dollar Focus on the Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.
