Route Z Bridge in Scott County Opens to Traffic
300th Bridge Improved Through Safe & Sound Program

Today's opening of the Route Z bridge over Drainage Ditch No. 2 in Scott County marks the 300th bridge completed through the Missouri Department of Transportation's Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program.

"We are making great progress on the Safe & Sound program," said Southeast Regional Field Engineer Andy Meyer. "The statewide Safe & Sound team is currently opening an improved bridge almost every two days."

By the end of the year, the Safe & Sound team estimates a total 325 to 330 bridges will be opened to traffic statewide. Next year, the program will pursue an even more aggressive schedule.  The statewide Safe & Sound team will tackle more than 330 bridge projects in 2011.

Plans are underway to wrap up the Southeast District's portion of the program by the end of 2011-delivering on the commitment to improve 86 bridges throughout Southeast Missouri.

 "We expect to have completed improvements on 50 Safe & Sound bridges in Southeast Missouri by the end of this year," said Meyer. "The 36 remaining bridges are currently scheduled to be completed next year."

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.
