The southbound lane of Highway 5, just south of Route Y in Ava was closed for over 3 hours last Friday after a mobile home lost an axle and partially left the roadway. Ava Police Dept. and the Missouri State Highway Patrol had officers on scene during the entire ordeal, working traffic through the area. In the Photo above, Ava Officer Brenda Dinwiddie is directing traffic. The lower photo shows two wreckers from Jim’s Body Shop that were used to help lift the trailer so a new axle could be put underneath.
