MoDOT reopens Evans Road bridge in south Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- MoDOT reopened the Evans Road bridge on U.S. 65 in south Springfield after months of construction.

Crews finished the last striping work on the new bridge Wednesday afternoon. Work to replace the bridge began in April.

The bridge work is part of a bigger project of widening U.S. 65 from Springfield to Ozark to six lanes of traffic. That project will finish sometime in August.
