Monday is the first day of repair work on the Champ Clark Bridge at Louisiana.

MODOT crews begin the task of replacing over a thousand rusted rivets on the bridge.

As a result, the bridge will be closed through Thursday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., then again October 26 through the 28th from 6 to 6.

MODOT is offering free text or email updates on the status of the bridge work. You can find out more on that at the Missouri Department of Transportation website.
