BRANSON, Mo – A section of Gretna Road between North Wildwood Dr. and the entrance of B.A.T. Boys Automotive located at 570 Gretna Road will be closed to through traffic beginning Tuesday, May 31, 2022, through Friday, July 1, 2022, for road reconstruction. This closure also includes a section of N. Wildwood Dr. between the White House Theater and Log Cabin Circle.
This road reconstruction is a result of a substantial 12-inch water main break at Gretna Road and N. Wildwood Dr. that occurred on April 29, 2022. The water main break caused extensive damage to the road. While city crews immediately performed what repairs they could with the resources available, upon a thorough investigation of the damages, the repairs needed included road repair and replacement as well as sidewalk, curb and gutter repairs. The Branson Board of Aldermen approved the contract with Blevins Asphalt for the repairs, not to exceed $487,902.32, and approved adjusting the 2022 Budget for this repair at the May 24, 2022, regular Board of Aldermen meeting.
In addition to making immediate temporary repairs to accommodate traffic, city crews have monitored the road on a daily basis to make sure the road is drivable and make continued temporary repairs.
Signage will be in place to detour traffic around the road closure and to meet traffic safety standards during the closure. Motorists are asked to be aware of signage, traffic cones and work crews in the marked Work Zone. This road work is weather dependent.
