Route 8 Big River Bridge in St. Francois County to Close for Improvements
Improvements will be made as part of the Safe and Sound Program

SIKESTON- As part of the Safe and Sound Bridge Improvement Program, work on the Route 8 bridge over Big River in St. Francois County will begin Monday, April 26 at 6:30 a.m., weather permitting.

As construction is underway, traffic will be reduced to one lane from Harmon Lane to Germania Road with a 10-foot width restriction in place. Traffic will be controlled by temporary signals, and motorists should expect up to 15 minute delays.

"Unlike other Safe and Sound bridge projects, this project will not involve a complete bridge closure," said Southeast Regional Field Engineer Andy Meyer. "Drivers can expect to see our contractor working to remove and construct the new bridge deck one half at a time."

He explained that a complete closure was not possible due to a lack of suitable detour routes.

The Route 8 bridge improvements are expected to be completed in late July.

For more information, please call Meyer at (573) 472-5296, Resident Engineer Matt Malone at (573) 431-4933 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).   More information is also available online at: www.modot.org/southeast/safeandsound.htm
