April 8 Celebration Scheduled for New Missouri River Bridge Attachment

JEFFERSON CITY - On Friday, April 8, state and local officials will gather on the north side of the Missouri River to celebrate the completion of the pedestrian/bicycle attachment on the U.S. 54 eastbound/U.S. 63 northbound Missouri River Bridge in Jefferson City.

"Through the addition of this bridge attachment, we are providing a safer transportation route for motorists, walkers, and bicyclists who used to share a high speed highway to cross the river," said MoDOT Transportation Project Manager Jason Vanderfeltz. "This project will have a lasting effect for the area, enhancing state and local tourism and the economy."

The ribbon cutting event begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Missouri Department of Conservation's Carl R. Noren Public Fishing Access area, located at Fourth Street and Cottonwood Drive. The public is invited to attend the ribbon cutting, which will be held rain or shine.

The new $6.7 million bridge attachment is eight feet wide and includes two look out points with a view of the Missouri State Capitol. A ramp structure on the north side of the river allows access to the Katy Trail via the public fishing area.

OCCI, Inc., of Fulton, Mo., was the contractor for the project, which started in mid-May 2010. The Missouri Department of Transportation, City of Jefferson, Department of Natural Resources, and the Missouri State Parks Foundation partnered to construct the project.
