Huntingfield Bridge Work26-Aug-2015

Construction began Monday to replace the Huntingfield Bridge between Jefferson and Medical Park. Mexico Public Works Director discusses why the construction was necessary:

Since the conversion to one-lane, the city has been working towards the replacement. The construction is being completed under a partnership between the city and Audrain County. County bridge crews work to replace the bridge while city crews replace the street. Mexico is also buying the necessary materials. 

A detour is set up down Boulevard, to South Clark to Teal Lake Road, and back over to Huntingfield.
