Boone County Interstate 70 Bridge Rehabilitations over Perche Creek

Below are details, resources and news about the rehabilitations of the Interstate 70 bridges over Perche Creek in Boone County, west of Columbia. The old eastbound bridge was constructed in 1958 and the former westbound bridge was constructed in 1940. Each bridge carries approximately 23,000 vehicles per day.

Both bridges were included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state. Check out the Focus on Bridges page for more information about the program.
