Effective immediately the bridge on Quisenberry Road, approximately 1/4 mile south of State Route Y west of Sedalia, is being closed until further notice.

The recommendation to close the structure was made Wednesday following a routine check of the County’s bridges by the Missouri Department of Transportation.

The Pettis County Commission is expected to formally order the closing of the bridge on Thursday morning.

Crews from the Pettis County Highway Department will be placing barriers and signage on both sides of the bridge to prohibit vehicular access.

Motorists are advised to plan alternate routes. The final status of the bridge will be determined by the Commission at a later time.

All emergency agencies, such as law enforcement, fire and ambulance service, have been notified of the closure and have been asked to plan for alternate routes, if needed.
