Route 28 Bridge Over Dry Creek To Open Later Today, Four Days Early

MARIES COUNTY - A new bridge that carries Route 28 over Dry Creek Fork in Maries County will open late this afternoon - four days ahead of schedule.  

"The bridge replacement crews operating in the Meramec region have been working hard to complete projects on or ahead of schedule," said Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Preston Kramer.  "I believe that's what customers can expect for the remainder of the construction season."

The bridge replacement project began Feb. 20.  The work was originally scheduled to begin in March, but was moved up because of the bridge's poor condition.  MoDOT had restricted the bridge to one lane of traffic in January. 

"We appreciate motorists' patience while the bridge was closed," Kramer said.

The bridge replacement is part of MoDOT's Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program, which will improve 802 of Missouri's worst bridges by the end of 2012.  Currently, more than 670 of the bridges included in the program have been improved statewide.
