MoDOT is rehabilitating the Champ Clark Bridge at Louisiana this summer.  Although the funding will be shared with the Illinois Department of Tranpsortation, all work will be facilitated and overseen by MoDOT.

The rehabilitation includes:

•  Painting - The entire bridge will be repainted light gray.   In the "splash zone", the area under the road to 10 feet above, all paint will be removed first.   The "splash zone" is where vehicles spray dirt, salt and water on the steel causing the paint to deteriorate and steel to corrode.

•  Steel repair - Missing rivets and rusted and fractured steel pieces will be replaced.

•  Highway surface (deck) - Asphalt will be removed, then the exposed concrete will be repaired and a new 1 1/2" asphalt surface will be laid.

•  Navigational lights - The original lights will be replaced.

•  Pier cleaning and repair - Some of the concrete on the piers has deteriorated; these areas will be repaired.  Additional work will be done to epair erosion on the Missouri side.
