168 Bridge Over Clear Creek Replaced

To help share the message of insufficient funding for Missouri’s transportation system, the Northeast District created a video documenting the construction of one of the last bridges on a supplementary system.

Travis Wombwell, northeast district bridge engineer, explains the bridge featured in this video. Missouri Route 168 over Clear Creek just north of Hannibal, was built in the 1930s and the types of transportation using the bridge during that time were far different from the vehicles using the bridge today. The original Route 168 bridge was over 80 years old, one lane and had a load limit.

“This video will be used as a basis for some of our upcoming personal stories showing how a closed or posted bridge personally affects families and businesses and leads them to learning more about the 325 system,” said Marisa Ellison, communication manager. 

Below is a picture of the bridge during construction. The project took about three months to complete.   Dusty Wilson from the Hannibal Project Office, Dwayne Bailey with Bleigh Construction, Kent Worthington from Hannibal Project Office, and Delmar Whittaker from Hannibal Project Office, pose for a picture after the completion of the project.

The Warren County Route Y bridge is in the process of being redecked. Above is a picture of the progress made this week on the project.   Jennifer Hinson partakes in the Snack Cantine put on this week at the district office to help raise money for NERF, the Northeast Relief Fund. Cookies, cupcakes, pies, and more were sold to aid Northeast employees during difficult times through NERF proceeds.
