August 15, 2018: One lane of Route 47 on the Franklin County side of the bridge will close next week for about a month. The southbound, right lane of Route 47 will be closed from the end of the bridge to Third Street starting on Monday, August 20 at 8:30 a.m. The lane will remain closed around-the-clock until mid-September.
The lane closure will allow crews to work on drainage, sidewalk and pavement as part of the Route 47 Missouri River Bridge project. All work is weather permitting.
