Commission Awards Contract for Route 60 Bridge Projects in Stoddard and New Madrid Counties

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting on Feb. 1 to replace two westbound Route 60 bridges in Stoddard and New Madrid Counties. The first bridge is located over the railroad west of Route 61 in Sikeston. The second bridge is located over the railroad located east of Route 25 near Dexter, Mo.  The $1,682,758 contract was awarded to Joe's Bridge & Grading, Inc., Poplar Bluff, Mo.

The project will include replacing the decks on both bridges. Weather permitting, construction is expected to begin in spring 2012, with completion anticipated in summer 2012.

Improvements to the Route 60 bridges will be completed through the Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program. Unlike other Safe & Sound projects, these projects will not involve road closures due to the traffic volume in the area. Traffic will be diverted to the eastbound lanes with a 16-foot width restriction. 

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.

 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, please contact Construction and Materials Engineer Andy Meyer at (573) 472-5296, Resident Engineer Audie Pulliam or Assistant Resident Engineer Tammy Hefner at (573) 840-9781 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
