East Fork Of Little Tarkio Creek Bridge Now OPEN

The East Fork Little Tarkio Creek Bridge on U.S. Route 136 near the Atchison and Nodaway County border opened Thursday. The bridge had been closed since August.

The new bridge is 12 feet wider than the old bridge at 32 feet wide with four-foot shoulders.  The bridge also has fewer support structures to minimize the drift and debris that caught on the old bridge’s central support piers during flooding events.
