Commission Awards Contract for Route TT Bridge Project in New Madrid/Pemiscot County

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting on Dec. 7 to improve the Route TT bridge over Portage Bay located on the New Madrid/Pemiscot county line. The $311,088 contract was awarded to Joe's Bridge & Grading, Inc., Poplar Bluff, Mo.

The project will include replacing the bridge deck. The new bridge will also feature a lower rail height to better accommodate agricultural traffic.

Weather permitting, construction is expected to begin in May 2012, with completion anticipated in August 2012.

"The work will be completed while school is out of session to minimize the impact to local residents as much as possible," said Project Manager Eric Krapf.

As work to replace the bridge is underway, the roadway will remain closed.

"By closing the road, MoDOT is able to save money for other needed improvements," said Krapf. "If MoDOT constructed a temporary bridge to keep the road open, it would add approximately $250,000 to the cost of the project."

Work zones will be marked with signs as improvements are 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 Krapf at (573) 472-5261, Transportation Project Designer David Blalock at (573) 472-5295, Resident Engineer Brian Holt at (573) 472-5325 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK MODOT (275-6636).
