The new Highway 168 overpass bridge over U.S. 61 in Palmyra is now open to traffic.

The Missouri Department of Transportation reports that the new northbound Highway 61 acceleration lane is also open to traffic.

Also, all four lanes of U.S. 61 are now open to traffic on the north end of Palmyra.

There is still some work to be done around the overpass, but the new overpass bridge and all four lanes of 61 will remain open as the project is completed.
