The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commis­sion is planning to replace bridges on Route 21 and Route 49 in Iron County.

The Route 21 project in­volves replacing the bridge over Carver Creek, located approximately 2.2 miles west of the intersection of Route 21/72/49 near Glover, Mo.

The Route 49 project in­volves replacing the bridge over Big Creek, located ap­proximately 1.5 miles south of Annapolis, Mo.

The projects are expected to be let in May 2018, with construction anticipated as early as summer 2018.

As construction is under­way on Route 21, the road­way will be reduced to a single lane with temporary signals in place.

As construction is un­derway on Route 49, the roadway will be closed to through traffic in the vicin­ity of the bridge.

Maps, plans, and other information prepared by the Missouri Department of Transportation, or inter­ested agency, will be avail­able for public inspection and copying at the Missouri Department of Transporta­tion’s Sikeston District of­fice, 2675 N. Main Street, Sikeston, MO 63801.

Any person affected by this project may request that a public hearing be held in regard to the proposed im­provements.

Requests for a public hear­ing should be in writing and must be submitted to District Engineer Mark Shelton at P.O. Box 160, Sikeston, MO 63801, by Sept. 27, 2017.
