MoDOT’s $21.3M Bootheel Bridge Bundle Project Completed
The opening of the Route A bridge over Whitewater River in Cape Girardeau County marks the completion of the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Bootheel Bridge Bundle.
This design-build project delivered 17 bridge improvement projects to Southeast Missouri travelers. Thirteen bridges in the Bootheel Bridge Bundle were also included in Governor Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.
“The Bootheel Bridge Bundle was the first design-build project in MoDOT’s Southeast District,” said MoDOT Project Director Benji Philpot. “Design-build projects combine both the design and construction phases into one contract.”

Due to the innovative nature of design-build projects, MoDOT initially identified 10 more bridges as potential add-ons to increase the value of the project. Contractor teams submitted proposals detailing their plans for the 15 primary bridges and selected potential add-on bridges to also address.
Two of the alternate bridges will be improved through the Bootheel Bridge Bundle design-build project, in addition to the 15 primary bridges.
