SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -

Drivers in a rural part of eastern Greene County will need to find another route this week. The county Highway Department will close Farm Road 68 between Farm Roads 209 to the west and Farm Road 215 to the east. The closure takes place from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Crews will replace a box culvert on that stretch of road north of Strafford. It will also be closed in the overnight hours for the work to continue. The project is dependent on the weather.
