Ribbon Cutting Scheduled in Lewis County for MO 16 Safe and Sound Bridge

HANNIBAL - The public is invited to join MoDOT, its contractors, federal, state and local officials on Thursday, July 26 at 11 a.m. for a ribbon cutting in Lewis County celebrating the opening of the new Sugar Creek Bridge on MO 16 just east of Monticello. The new bridge is eight-foot wider and took almost two months to complete. The bridge will open to traffic on Tuesday, July 24. All three Lewis County Commissioners and a representative from US Senator Claire McCaskill's office have confirmed their attendance. This is the final bridge of three that was replaced on MoDOT's Safe and Sound Bridge Program. Route E over the Wyaconda River and Route 156 over Big Grassy Creek also were replaced within the last two years.

The Safe and Sound Bridge program is a great example of what can be accomplished when funding is available," said MoDOT Area Engineer Amy Crawford. "But with current transportation funding levels, it is unlikely Missourians will continue to see the number of bridge improvements we've had with Safe and Sound by repairing or replacing 802 bridges in the past four years. In the midst of a funding shortage, we will focus on maintaining our current system for as long as possible."

More information about this bridge and others being repaired or replaced can be found online under the Safe and Sound Bridge Program icon at modot.org/northeast.
