PROJECT DETAILS

This project will replace the Blue Ridge Blvd. bridge over I-70 as well as make interchange improvements to the ramps and approaches. 

Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2023 with an anticipated completion by the end of the same year. Blue Ridge Blvd. will be closed at I-70 during the bridge replacement and at times there will be minor traffic impacts to I-70.

The estimated cost of this project is between $5 and $6 million. This bridge is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.

ONLINE Public Meeting

This meeting closed on Friday, November 12, 2021. 

Those interested were able to review the information on this webpage, ask questions, and leave comments about the project using a provided webform located at the bottom of this webpage.  An informational video and plans of the preferred concepts and possible alternatives are also available below. 

During the conceptual stages of the project, MoDOT reviewed five design options for consideration. Each of these alternatives can be reviewed on this webpage. The preferred concept was Option 2B which extends acceleration lengths for both U.S. 40 and Blue Ridge Blvd. It also uses the existing right of way to minimize impacts. Additionally, a noise study is being completed within the project limits. The new bridge will be built to accommodate the possible future widening of I-70. Each of the plans can be viewed on this webpage.
