Route 41 Bridge Replacement Project
Updated plans for replacing the bridge over the Lamine River on Route 41 in Cooper County were presented at a meeting held July 12, 2013 in Blackwater. The project involves closing Route 41 at the Lamine River, removing the existing bridge and constructing a new bridge at the same location. This project is scheduled to take place during the spring and summer of 2014.
Virtual drive-through videos showing the sight distance when traveling both north and south over the existing bridge, as well as the improved sight distance when traveling both directions under the new bridge design are below.

I-70 Improvement Study
The I-70 Improvement Study is an effort by the Missouri Department of Transportation to determine how to improve the safety and efficiency of travel on 199 miles of Interstate 70 between Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri. The study identified widening and reconstructing the existing I-70 as the preferred approach to improving the corridor. It also considered the location and configuration of improvements to be made.
In September 2007, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced Interstate 70 through Missouri as one of six interstates nationwide included in its “Corridors of the Future” program to look at innovative ways to reduce congestion and improve freight delivery.
The program calls for the Interstate 70 corridor through Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio to add four dedicated truck lanes. Missouri will receive $2 million to supplement the existing I-70 study to consider the truck lanes concept.
