Saturday night around 5 p.m., August 4, US 54 between Bowling Green and Louisiana reopened to traffic after being closed almost a month and a half to replace the 83 year old bridge at Noix Creek near Vera, and the 53 year old bridge at the North Fork of Noix Creek.

Each bridge was replaced with a new 44-foot wide bridge under the Safe and Sound Bridge program. “We know this has been an inconvenience, and we appreciate the patience and cooperation of the area businesses, residents and Pike County officials as we worked to make these improvements,” said MoDOT Area Engineer Brian Haeffner.
