Route B Bridge in Cooper County to Get New Deck

COOPER COUNTY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Transportation is holding an online public meeting to share information about an upcoming project that will replace the deck on a bridge located on Route B in Cooper County.

Information about the project, which will replace the deck on the Petite Saline Creek bridge, is available for comment at www.modot.org/central/CooperRouteBBridge.htm.

The Petite Saline Creek bridge is located two miles south of Interstate 70 and was built in 1966.

“The existing bridge deck has reached a point where it is more cost effective to replace it than to keep maintaining it,” said MoDOT Project Manager Mike Dusenberg. “This will allow us to reuse the existing substructure, which is in good condition, improve the guardrail and driving surface, which increases safety, and do it all at less cost to the taxpayers.”

The project is scheduled to be bid in the January of 2017, with construction scheduled to take place in the spring and summer of 2017. Motorists will be encouraged to use alternate routes during construction, and those alternate routes can be found on the project page. 

The Petite Saline bridge will be closed from 60 to 90 calendar days.

An online comment form is available on the project website for anyone who would like to provide feedback. The public comment period runs from Thursday, Dec. 15 through Wednesday, Dec. 28.

More information is available by calling MoDOT toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (1-888-275-6636) or by contacting Project Manager Mike Dusenberg at 573-751-7699 or Michael.Dusenberg@modot.mo.gov.
