MO 15 at Fairgrounds to Close for Bridge Repair
Dirt work has already begun in preparation for the road closure on MO 15 south of Memphis to replace this bridge near the fairgrounds.
HANNIBAL - Weather permitting, beginning Monday, September 17 at 7 a.m., MO 15 will be closed to traffic approximately ½ mile south of US 136 at Memphis to replace the current narrow concrete box culvert near the Scotland County Fairgrounds.
The old box culvert will be replaced with a new, wider culvert pipe which will accommodate two 11 ft. traffic lanes. The work should take approximately 5 working days to complete.
Road closure signs will be in place notifying motorists of the work. A detour is available over Routes M and MM. 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.
