Contractor crews are replacing the bridge deck or driving surface.

Beginning the week of June 23, the Vernon County Route B bridge over Clear Creek between I-49 and Route DD east of Sheldon is scheduled to CLOSE. It will reopen by the end of August.

The roads are being closed so contractor crews can move quickly to make the major repairs to the bridges and get them open more quickly for drivers.

Signs and message boards will alert drivers to the road closings and detours where they are designated .

Weather and/or construction delays will alter the work schedule.

Two other bridges – Vernon County Route E over Clear Creek east of Milo and Dade County Route A over Muddy Fork southwest of Lockwood – are scheduled for construction in 2015.
