As construction moves forward on the new Route 47 Missouri River Bridge, the City would like to remind everyone about the potential for minor traffic impacts during off-peak hours, and that the speed limit in the area is 40 mph. This is a construction zone. People are encouraged to do the speed limit through the area for your safety and the safety of the crews out on and near the road. Trucks will continue to deliver and unload materials to the construction site, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. This requires crews to momentarily stop traffic on the Warren County side of Route 47 to allow the trucks to pull on and off the road.
In addition, please remember the construction site is strictly off limit. That includes the portion of the Rotary Riverfront Trail (between the bridge and the sand plant) that is closed. All closed areas are clearly marked with no trespassing signs.
