The Little Tarkio Creek Bridge, in Atchison County on Missouri Route 46, is scheduled to be replaced beginning Monday, February 12. The Missouri Department of Transportation has contracted North Central Bridge, LLC for the project.

During construction, Route 46 will be closed at the bridge. A signed detour will be in place directing motorists to use U.S. Route 59, U.S. Route 136 and Route N. Construction of the new Little Tarkio Bridge is scheduled to be complete by the end of May 2024.

This project also includes replacement of the bridge over the Pike Creek Drainage Ditch on Atchison Route 111. The replacement of the Pike Creek Drainage Ditch is scheduled to begin once the East Fork Little Tarkio Creek Bridge is complete. All work is expected to be completed by the December 2024 contract completion date.
