While construction is underway, Route K will be closed to through traffic near the bridge construction area.

Requests must be in writing and submitted to the District Engineer at P.O. Box 160, Sikeston, MO 63801, by January 6, 2017.

Maps, plans, and other information will be available for public inspection and copying at the Missouri Department of Transportation's Sikeston District office, 2675 N. Main Street, Sikeston, MO.
