Light at the End of the Tunnel: Missouri River Bridge To Open Nov. 14Missouri River Bridge

There’s some good news on the horizon for Missouri River Bridge commuters: the westbound Route 54/63 bridge in Jefferson City will reopen on Nov. 14.

The bridge, which has been closed since May 1 for painting and other repairs, was expected to open to traffic by the end of August, but unforeseen structural work kept that from happening.  

More specifically, the blasting process used to remove the old paint on the bridge revealed a larger number of deteriorated rivets needing to be replaced, so MoDOT extended its contract with Saffo, Inc., to repair the rivets and perform other structural repairs. (MORE)
