MoDOT hopes to reopen Highway 136 soon

(KLZA)-- Recent rises in flood waters has again delayed several flood recovery projects in Northwest Missouri. 

The Missouri Department of Transportation has awarded several contracts, with more contracts planned for roadway and shoulder repairs along with bridge reconstruction. 

MoDOT is hopeful U.S. Route 136 in Atchison County, including the Missouri River Crossing to Brownville, will be open soon. The end of this week is the earliest the stretch of road could reopen. Weather will play a big factor in determining when the road will open.

Currently the contractor is working on shoulder rock and slope work between the bridge  near Phelps  City and the Missouri River.

The contractor is also  continuing repair work on the approaches to the bridge near Phelps City.  The concrete approaches need time to cure, allowing it to reach its maximum strength.

MoDOT also reports that at this time, there is no damage evident to the Missouri River Bridge at Brownville.
