BRO Projects Environmental Requirement Reminder
Please keep in mind that asbestos and lead paint testing are required on all BRO projects. This is not a new requirement but it seems to be taking many County's by surprise.
A Missouri certified asbestos inspector and testing lab will need to determine if asbestos is present. If the bridge has any painted surfaces, that paint will need to be tested for the presence of lead.
Here are some links to general information bulletins from DNR.

KC District LPA Staff Changes
Congratulations to Lee Ann Kell and Rich Shipley. Rich and Lee Ann have recently received Project Manager positions in the Kansas City district. They will gradually be moving away from project administration responsibilities for local projects and assume those duties for state led projects on MoDOT's right of way.
Jackie White has assumed a position outside of MoDOT.
Mike Landvik assumed a position on a design build team in the KC District in December 2012.
For the time being LPA Project administration responsibilities for the Kansas City district prior to construction will primarily be handled by Gerri Doyle and Marisela Ward. Project administration responsibilites after construction will continue to be handled by James Bentley and Dave Luther.
Some of these vacant positions within MoDOT's KC Planning Division will be filled.
