(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Missouri Department of Transportation is hosting a public open house on Tuesday from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at the Remington Nature Center. The meeting will discuss potential future plans for the I-229 double-decker bridge in St. Joseph.

The public will be able to participate in an interactive open-house style meeting to review and rate potential alternatives. There will be no formal presentations and attendees may come at any time during the open house. People will have the opportunity to study and asses each of the nearly 20 alternatives and ask questions about them.

Some alternatives to the current structure include removing it all together or rehabilitating it, among others.

Officials with MoDOT say that the mile-long bridge is nearing the point where decisions will need to be made about what to do with it and since any plan would need considerable tax dollars, the department is seeking input from the public.

For those wanting to attend the meeting, officials do ask that you register for the event. You can do so by clicking here.

A cold front is currently moving through our area this morning dropping temperatures into the lower 40s and upper 30s. Today will be a cool day with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s with increasing clouds. Temperatures will fall into the lower 30s tonight. We could see a few areas of light rain and drizzle this evening, but precipitation chances will start to increase overnight into tomorrow morning. With the sub freezing temperatures, precipitation will transition from light rain and drizzle in the evening to snow overnight into Tuesday morning. Snowfall will continue through the morning hours on Tuesday before transitioning to a rain/snow mix while it exits the area. Most areas will see around 1-3 inches. Accumulations will stay mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces, but expect slushy road conditions Tuesday morning. Conditions will slowly start to improve for the rest of the work week with sunshine returning and temperatures slowly warming. Rain chances will return for the end of the work week.
