Gasconade River BridgeMoDOT Once Again Seeking Owner for Gasconade River Bridge

MoDOT is once again looking for someone to take overthe Gasconade River Bridge, located on historic Route 66 near Hazelgreen in Laclede County.

MoDOT had been in negotiations with Workin’ Bridges, a private organization that works to save old bridges from demolition, to take ownership of the 90-year-old bridge in its existing location. ¬†However, Workin’ Bridges recently indicated it had decided not to pursue the project.

That means the transportation department is once again looking for a new owner for the old bridge. Under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, MoDOT is accepting proposals through March 15, 2019, from parties interested in preserving the current structure. (MORE)
