Bridge shut down until mid-August
...A spokesman for MoDOT told Pleasant Hill City Hall last week that the “Green Bridge” on 7 Highway south of town is expected to be closed until mid August. ...The project to replace bearings under the bridge was originally scheduled to be completed during the week of July 20, but unanticipated problems have delayed the project. ...Weather delays set the work back initially and unforeseen problems with the bridge bearings themselves will require more extensive repair work than originally thought. ...MoDOT officials indicate that they still hope to have the project completed before the start of school on August 18. ...The bridge was closed for repairs on June 10. As a result of the bridge repairs, 7 Highway has been closed to traffic just south of the 58 Highway intersection.
