Construction to Begin on Highway 15 Bridge in Edina

HANNIBAL - Weather permitting, Monday, July 9, MO 15 will close to replace the North Fork Fabius River Bridge located at the north edge of Edina.

The 89-year-old truss bridge should take approximately 49 working days to replace and should open to traffic in late August. The new bridge will be 28-foot wide, and will not have trusses which will allow large farm equipment and other large vehicles with height limitations to pass over the bridge safely.

Road closure signs will be in place notifying motorists of the work. A detour is available over Routes AA, V and MO 6. Some areas of the road will remain open to residential traffic only; all other traffic must take alternate routes during this time. Message boards along the road will be set up in advance of the closure.

For more information about this bridge or others in the Safe and Sound Bridge Program, contact MoDOT's customer service center at 1-888 ASK MODOT or visit us online at
