KNOB NOSTER – Crews will close the Blackwater Bridge on state Route 23 north of Knob Noster beginning Monday for approximately three months for bridge replacement work, followed by paving. All work is weather dependent.
A signed state detour will be in place and will send traffic west on Route 50 at Knob Noster, north on Route 13, east on I-70 and south on Route 23 at Concordia.
The Missouri Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert and use caution when driving through work zones. Follow the posted speed limits, and take turns merging every other car, like a zipper, where lanes are closed. Always wear safety belts and be alert for slowed traffic, narrowed lanes or a reduced number of lanes.
