Augusta Bottom Road between Emke Road and Schell Road will close July 10 for the removal and replacement of a deteriorating bridge.

According to the St. Charles County Highway Department, traffic will be detoured around the closure for about two weeks while the bridge is replaced.

Local traffic can access either side of the closure location, but no through traffic will be permitted. Signs notifying motorists of the closure and the necessary detours will be posted.

This road project is part of a continuing effort by St. Charles County to improve the road system for the safety of the traveling public.
