Route 133 Realignment in Meta - Sugar Creek Bridge Replacement, Route 133
MoDOT proposed to realign a portion of Route 133 and replace the Sugar Creek Bridge in Meta, Mo. The realignment work would begin approximately a half mile south of Route B at Meta and continues south for about a half mile. The work is being done to improve safety by reducing the grade of a steep hill at this location.
MoDOT also proposes to replace the Sugar Creek Bridge on Route 133 in Meta as part of the Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program.
Both projects would require closing the roadway and detouring traffic. Work is tentatively scheduled to take place during the 2012 construction season.
