Contract Awarded for Missouri River Bridge Repairs
Maintenance Project to Begin in Spring of 2016, Will Close Westbound Bridge

JEFFERSON CITY – The westbound U.S. Route 54/63 bridge over the Missouri River in Jefferson City will receive a facelift in 2016. The contract for painting and deck repairs on the westbound bridge was awarded today by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission.

The commission awarded the contract to Saffo Contractors, Inc. of Wilmington, North Carolina. The contractor submitted the low bid of $7 Million.

Motorists who travel to and from Jefferson City via the Route 54/63 Missouri River bridges will want to take note, because the bridge maintenance project will greatly impact traffic next spring. The westbound Route 54/63 Missouri River bridge will be closed for four months while the bridge is painted and the deck is repaired. The eastbound bridge will remain open and will be striped to carry two lanes of eastbound and two lanes of westbound Route 54/63 traffic.

In addition, all access ramps from Route 54/63 to West Main Street, the eastbound on-ramp from McCarty St. to Route 54/63, and the westbound on-ramp from Route W to Route 54/63 will be closed during the westbound bridge closure. Speed limits will also be reduced on and near the bridge.

The entire project will take 16 months to complete.

For more information about this project or other transportation-related matters, please call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636). Motorists can also visit www.modot.org/central  or follow the Central District Facebook page at facebook.com/MoDOTCentralMissouriDistrict.
