The Missouri Department of Transportation will be closing one southbound lane of U.S. 65, north of Branson, at the Bear Creek Bridge for a couple of weeks.

In a press release, MoDOT officials said that from Dec. 16-27, crews will be working to repair components underneath the bridge, which will require one lane of the highway to remain closed ‘round the clock. The other southbound lane of traffic will remain open at all times. 

During this shutdown, traffic slowdowns and backups are possible during heavy traffic volume times. Drivers are urged to seek alternative routes of travel if possible. Weather and/or construction delays could alter the work schedule, said the release.
