I-44 Bridge over Pickerel Creek in Greene County Reopened

After months of construction that began in May, a new bridge along I-44 over Pickerel Creek is open.

The original bridge was demolished this summer as part of an area project to replace 25 bridges in southwest Missouri.

Officials say the bridge features new barrier walls, improved guard rails, and more noticeable striping along the pavement.

While construction is complete, there may still be some nighttime lane closures while contractors complete finishing details on the project.
