Work To Improve Stoddard County Bridges Continues
Two Design-Build Bridge Projects Scheduled to Begin this June

SIKESTON- With the first design-build bridge improvement project completed in Stoddard County, work to replace two more design-build bridges is scheduled to begin this June.  Improvements to the District 4 drainage ditch bridge on Route E will begin Tuesday, June 1, and construction to replace the Route Y bridge over Little River will begin Monday, June 7, weather permitting.

"We are off to a great start with the design-build portion of the Safe and Sound Bridge Improvement Program," said Southeast Regional Field Engineer Andy Meyer.  "These bridges will be the fourth and fifth design-build bridges to receive improvements in Stoddard County."

In an effort to lower costs and ensure speedy construction, both projects will involve a road closure as work is underway.  During the Route E bridge replacement, the roadway will remain closed from Route F to Route 153. During the Route Y bridge replacement, the roadway will remain closed from Route AB to Route Z.

Both bridge replacements are expected to be completed by mid-July.

Meyer explained through the design-build portion of the Safe and Sound program, 22 Stoddard County bridges will be replaced. The program will improve over 800 of the state's lowest-rated bridges by winter 2013.

Signs and warning devices will be in place as improvements are underway.  Motorists are urged to use extreme caution while traveling near the area.

For more information, please contact Meyer at (573) 472-5296, Assistant Resident Engineer David Wyman at (573) 840-9781 or 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636), or visit www.modot.org/southeast/safeandsound.htm.
