Route 54 Bridge Improvement Project Underway

US54250A project to improve nine Callaway County bridges along U.S. Route 54 began Thursday, July 20 with the rehabilitation of the westbound Route 54 bridge over Middle Creek. The bridge is located between Fulton and New Bloomfield, approximately six miles southwest of Fulton.


The preliminary work on the bridge, which will take place during the daytime hours, will reduce westbound Route 54 traffic over Middle River to one lane on Thursday, July 20 and Friday, July 21. Work during the two days involves removing and replacing the existing asphalt shoulders on the bridge.


Both lanes of westbound Route 54 over Middle River are scheduled to be reopened all day on Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23.

 

Bridge rehabilitation work begins again the morning of Monday, July 24. At this time, westbound Route 54 traffic will be reduced to one lane around the clock in the area of the bridge. Work on the bridge is scheduled to be completed by mid-September.

Project Description
The project will improve nine Callaway County bridges along U.S. Route 54 over the next 15 months. These nine bridges along Route 54 will either be rehabilitated or will have the decks replaced. In addition to the bridge improvements, the project also includes placing guard cable along sections of Route 54 from near the Missouri River Bridge in Jefferson City to I-70 in Kingdom City. The guardrail will increase safety and will help reduce crossover collisions along those areas of Route 54.

The Route 54 bridges included in the project are:

  • Route 54 westbound over Middle River  (Bridge Rehabilitation)
  • Route 54 eastbound over Richland Creek  (Deck Replacement)
  • Route 54 westbound over Richland Creek  (Deck Replacement)
  • Route 54 eastbound over the KCR Railroad  (Deck Replacement)
  • Route 54 eastbound over Stinson Creek  (Bridge Rehabilitation)
  • Route 54 eastbound over Business Route 54  (Bridge Rehabilitation)
  • Route 54 eastbound over Interstate 70  (Bridge Rehabilitation)
  • Route 54 westbound over Interstate 70  (Bridge Rehabilitation)
  • Route 54 westbound over Hillers Creek  (Bridge Rehabilitation)

For bridges that are being rehabbed, the expectation is that motorists will get an additional 20-25 years of service before a deck replacement or replacement is necessary.

 

For the bridges that are having a deck replacement, the expectation is that motorists will get an additional 30-40 years of life before a full replacement is necessary.
