WASHINGTON, Mo. (AP) - Construction is scheduled to begin Monday on a new Missouri River bridge at the eastern Missouri town of Washington.

Gov. Jay Nixon was in Washington Friday for a groundbreaking ceremony. The new bridge carrying Highway 47 traffic will replace an old, narrow bridge that was built more than 80 years ago.

The new bridge will cost $63 million and is scheduled to open by November 2018.
