Commission Awards Safe and Sound Bridge Improvements in Perry and Stoddard Counties

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting today for improvements to Route N Goose Creek Bridge in Perry County, and Route BB Main Drainage Ditch Bridge and Route AE Drainage Ditch 14 Bridge in Stoddard County.  The $620,553 contract was awarded to Penzel Construction Company Inc., Jackson, Mo. 

These bridge replacements are part of MoDOT's Safe and Sound Program.  There are 86 bridges in the Southeast District that are currently in the "Safe and Sound" program, and these are among the first 19 bridges to receive improvements.

These bridges will be identified throughout Southeast Missouri with the "Safe and Sound" logo signs near the bridges. These "Safe and Sound" signs identify these bridges as being some of Southeast District's poorest condition bridges-but these bridges will be repaired or replaced within the next five years.  In September, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission approved plans to improve more than 800 of the state's lowest rated bridges within the next five years.

Work on these newly awarded bridges is expected to begin this spring.  To do this, each bridge will be closed for up to six weeks during the work-it's quicker and more cost-efficient to do it all at once.  Motorists may need to plan alternate routes when each bridge is under construction.

Work zones will be marked with signs as the improvements are being made.   Drivers are urged to use extreme caution near the work zones and plan for possible delays.  MoDOT will alert drivers prior to any change in traffic. 

For more information, contact Project Manager Andy Meyer at (573)-472-5296 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
