The Kimberling City bridge which carries Route 13 traffic over Table Rock Lake will CLOSE for 24 hours beginning at 7 am on Tuesday December 8, and lasting until 7 am Wednesday, December 9, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

During the closing, NO TRAFFIC will be allowed across the bridge.

Drivers will have to use Route 86 , Route 65, and other state routes in the area to get around the bridge closing.

MoDOT is working with emergency responders to develop plans to reduce response times during the major traffic restriction.

During the closing, contractor crews will make repairs to the overhead steel trusses on the bridge. NO TRAFFIC can be on the bridge other than the work vehicles needed to complete the repairs.

The work is part of a larger project to make major repairs to the Kimberling City bridge. Total cost of the project is $10 million. The project is set for completion prior to Memorial Day in May 2016.
