ROLLA, MISSOURI- The historic Little Beaver Creek Bridge along old Route 66 west of Rolla, Missouri, has been closed so a new bridge would replace it this spring.

According to an article in the Phelps County Focus, Martin Springs Drive (aka Route 66) leading to the bridge was closed on Jan. 20. The new, 90-foot-long bridge to replace the single-lane span will be completed no later than June 1.

An earlier article in the Focus reported that Gene Haile Excavating of California, Missouri, will build the new bridge for $563,000 using federal funds from the Off-System Bridge Replacement and Rehabilitation Program and a soft-match funds swap with Webster County.
