A project that was delayed from December due to weather is now underway on Highway 65 in Northern Taney County.
MODOT crews are beginning work on the Bear Creek Bridge just north of the interchange with Highway 160. In conjunction with the bridge work, a southbound lane of Highway 65 will be closed during the bridge work which could take up to two weeks.
Motorist are urged to use caution as they lane closure could cause some traffic back-ups on the approach to the bridge.
