Pennsylvania Ave. Bridge closed indefinitely after failing inspection


The Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge in Joplin is closed indefinitely after a failed inspection.

The bridge that connects 5th Street to 7th Street was deemed unsafe for pedestrian and vehicular traffic after a state inspection. City officials do not have any plans for the 90 year old bridge at this moment. They will review options for the structure and decide how to move forward then.
