This is part of a bridge rehabilitation project to prolong the life of several structures in the Northland this construction season.
This project was awarded to Comanche Construction, Inc. for $3.2 million and will significantly improve the life of each structure. With more than 10,400 bridges on the Missouri state highway system - 7th largest total nationwide, one of MoDOT's priorities is to keep its bridges safe and in good condition. MoDOT continues to focus its efforts and resources to provide the best value, while honoring this commitment.
