The Texas County Commission will open bids Sept. 22 for a new bridge over the Big Piney River at Baptist Camp Access.

The current structure has been closed for more than a year after a Missouri Department of Transportation assessment determined it unsafe.

Plans call for construction of a two-span, 190-foot long pre-stressed concrete bridge. Related roadwork, paving and other improvements are also planned. The structure is situated on Camp Road. The length of the project site is 803 feet.
