Festus train trestle rebuild begins soon

(Festus) Festus residents will see lots of work happening on the Horine Road train trestle soon, which will cause some closures and detours through town. Festus City Administrator Greg Camp says this project has been needed for some time.

Camp says the new trestle structure will be much safer, but the height will remain the same.

There will be some preliminary work going from now until the date of the replacement work on September 26th. Be sure to follow all detours and road closures signage throughout the town as the date comes closer.
