Commission Awards Contract for Improvements to Route 8 Big River Bridge in St. Francois County
Final Safe and Sound Contract to be Awarded in St. Francois County

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting today for improvements to the Route 8 Bridge over Big River in St. Francois County.  The $767,924 contract was awarded to HBI Construction, LLC, Villa Ridge, Mo. 

This is the final contract to be awarded for Safe and Sound bridge improvements in St. Francois County.  To date, three bridges in St. Francois County have been improved and re-opened to traffic.  These bridges include: Route O Koen Creek bridge, Route F Wolf Creek bridge and, most recently, the Route 67 St. Francis River bridge.  Work is currently underway on the Route 67 Big River bridge. 

Work on the Route 8 Big River bridge is expected to get underway spring 2010.  Due to a lack of suitable detour routes, work will be staged.  During construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane and temporary signals will be in place.

 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).
