Public Hearing Scheduled for Route 17 Saline Creek Bridge Proposed Replacement in Miller County

MILLER COUNTY - The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold an open-house public hearing on Tuesday, July 12 to discuss plans being considered to replace the historic Saline Creek Bridge on Route 17 in Miller County. The Saline Creek bridge is located about three miles north of the Route 17 and Route 52 intersection.

The open-house public hearing will be held from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of the Miller County R-III High School, located at 526 School Road in Tuscumbia. The public may attend the hearing at any time during the advertised hours to speak with MoDOT staff and provide comments. No formal presentations will be made. The meeting location is accessible to persons with disabilities.

"We are considering the replacement of the bridge at its current location, making it eight feet wider than the current structure," said MoDOT Transportation Project Manager Nicole Hood. "This would involve closing the bridge during construction. We would like to gather input from the community about replacement of the historic bridge and the best possible time frame for the closure."

Some right of way and easements would be needed for the project. The new bridge would cost approximately $2 million to construct. Work would take place during the 2012 construction season.
