The Hwy. 215 bridge over Stockton Lake south of Stockton in Cedar County will close to traffic starting Tuesday, Sept. 8, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
The bridge will be closed until late May 2016 as contractor crews replace the driving surface or bridge deck.
Drivers should follow the signed detour by taking Hwy. 39 south at Hwy. 215 (near Stockton) to Dade County Hwy. Y at Arcola, then east on Hwy. Y back to Hwy. 215 to get around the bridge closing.
