Commission Awards Route A Scott County Improvements

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting yesterday for improvements to Route A in Scott County.  The $284,804 contract was awarded to Joe's Bridge & Grading, Inc., Poplar Bluff, Mo.

The project includes replacing the bridge over Caney Creek north of New Hamburg with a precast-prestressed concrete box girder bridge. 

There are several benefits to utilizing this type of precast-prestressed bridge instead of a conventional girder bridge with a concrete deck for this project. 

"Anytime you can simplify the structure, you speed up the construction and potentially reduce the cost," said Project Manager Andy Meyer.  "This innovative design allows MoDOT to deliver an economical project of excellent quality in a manner that will reduce the duration of the road closure by several weeks." 

Weather permitting, work could begin as early as this March.  However, contractors cannot close Route A until May 15.

Construction of the bridge is expected to be completed by August 14, allowing Route A to re-open to traffic.  The project is expected to be completed in its entirety by September.   

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

For more information, contact Meyer at (573) 472-5296, Resident Engineer Brian Holt at (573) 472-5325 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
