Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Celebrates Improvements to Route 34 in Bollinger County

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Tuesday, Dec. 17, to celebrate the completion of improvements to Route 34 in Bollinger County.

Speakers included:

  • Ms. Kristi Nitsch on behalf of U.S. Representative Jason Smith
  • State Senator Wayne Wallingford
  • Woodland School Superintendent Jennings Wilkinson
  • MoDOT Southeast District Engineer Mark Shelton

The improvements included grading and paving, as well as adding important safety features such as shoulders and realigning several curves.

"Without teamwork, this would not have been possible," said Project Manager Eric Krapf.

More than $2 million for Route 34 improvements came from the Delta Regional Transportation Program. Delta Regional Authority provided over $1 million. Woodland School District partnered with MoDOT and provided $300,000. In addition, $500,000 came from SFY 2010 Appropriations.

"We cannot thank our partners enough for stepping in to help this project become a reality. With the state’s current transportation funding issues, partnerships are vital," said Krapf.

MoDOT’s contractor pursued a very aggressive schedule once the project was awarded and completed the work about six months ahead of schedule.

For more information about the project, please call Krapf at 573-472-5261 or Transportation Project Designer Jeff Wachter at 573-472-5294. For more information about the dedication ceremony, please contact MoDOT Customer Service Center at 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).
