MoDOT's Bridge Contractors Ready to Roll out the Orange Barrels
Twenty-four Bridges to be Replaced or Repaired in 2012

HANNIBAL - With MoDOT, there are two seasons, winter and construction. However, due to the recent warm weather MoDOT's contractors want to cut winter short and get a jump start on the 2012 Safe and Sound Bridge construction season in Northeast Missouri. Only twenty-four bridges in ten counties in Northeast Missouri remain on the Safe and Sound replacement list for this construction season and it is a good time to get started.

"We have five bridge replacements beginning this winter, one closing as early as late January, and four more over February and March," said Macy Rodenbaugh, who is the MoDOT field engineer for the Safe and Sound bridge program in Northeast Missouri. "There is work that can be done in colder weather, and the contractor wants to get started as soon as possible on these bridges," explained Rodenbaugh. The Safe & Sound bridges are closed during construction and improvements are limited to just the bridge itself. To date, the average closure across the state has been about 40 days, or half the time a typical bridge replacement requires. During the 2011 construction season approximately 45 bridges were replaced and 13 rehabilitated. The first bridge scheduled for replacement this year is on MO 168 west of Philadelphia over the North River located just east of the Shelby County line. Construction is expected to begin the end of January.
