Work to replace the Highway 19 bridge over Second Creek will begin the morning of Monday, March 20. The bridge, which is located about eight miles north of Owensville, will be closed to traffic for 60 days until construction of the new bridge is completed.
Electronic message boards will be in place in the area to warn motorists of the closure. A signed detour will also be in place.
The signed detour routes around the bridge are:
• Highway 19 North: East on Highway 28 and then north on 50 back to 19.
• Highway 19 South: South on 50 and then west on 28 back to 19.
A map of the detour can be found at www.modot.org/central.
