CAMDEN COUNTY, Mo. – Due to bad weather in the forecast for Thursday, the demolition of the old Hurricane Deck Bridge is postponed until 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 6.

The blast was originally scheduled for Dec. 5 at 11 a.m.

Route 5 over the new Hurricane Deck Bridge near Sunrise Beach will be completely closed in both directions for about 15 minutes on Friday while crews blast a 740-foot section of the old bridge.

Water traffic will also be prohibited in the area for a 1,500-foot radius around the bridge for an hour, beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 10 a.m.

People in watercraft who plan to travel near the bridge should plan accordingly.

Once the area is secured, the span from the north end of the old bridge to the second pier in the water will be blasted and around one million pounds of steel from the truss will be dropped into the Lake of the Ozarks.

Any debris left on the new Hurricane Deck Bridge will be cleared before reopening the highway to traffic.

The Dec. 6 blast is the first of three blasts to demolish the old Hurricane Deck Bridge.

The second blast will be scheduled within two weeks after the first blast and the third blast will take place approximately two weeks after the second blast, weather permitting.
