A bridge that carries about 150 vehicles a day over Interstate 49 northwest of Harrisonville was closed Tuesday after inspectors found “continued deterioration of a structural element.”
The East Outer Road bridge connects Rockhaven Road with Peculiar Drive. The Missouri Department of Transportation planned work on the bridge in 2016 but that might be significantly moved up. Officials said even interim repairs, if possible, would take days or weeks to complete.
