Bridge Over North Fork of the Grindstone Creek to be Replaced on Route WW in Boone County

BOONE COUNTY - In mid-February and if the weather permits, construction crews will begin work to replace the bridge over the North Fork of the Grindstone Creek on Route WW in Boone County. The bridge is located just east of U.S. 63. 

To speed construction and reduce costs, the bridge will close during construction. Crews will remove the existing structure and replace it with a new bridge in the same location. Route WW will remain closed at this location for approximately 54 days. Motorists should seek alternate routes. 

This work is a part of MoDOT's Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program established to replace or rehabilitate 802 worn-out bridges across the state in five years - by the end of 2013. Ninety bridges will be replaced or repaired in mid-Missouri as part of this program. So far, more than 300 bridges have been improved across the state.

As construction on the North Fork of the Grindstone Creek Bridge nears, specific construction dates will be displayed to motorists on electronic message boards and shared with local media. Information can also be found at www.modot.org

"Those who use this roadway should seek alternate routes and allow additional time to travel around the work area," said MoDOT Area Engineer Mike Schupp. 

The existing bridge over the North Fork of the Grindstone Creek was originally constructed in 1961. 

"This bridge currently has a posted weight limit, is deteriorating and is in need of replacement," said Schupp. "We appreciate the patience and cooperation of the motoring public. We will work swiftly to replace this bridge and reopen the roadway as soon as possible."
