ABOUT THE BOOTHEEL BRIDGE BUNDLE
The purpose of the Bootheel Bridge Bundle project is to repair or replace fifteen of the bridges on the Southeast District’s asset management plan. The Missouri Department of Transportation anticipates beginning the procurement process on this design-build project in early 2020. One design-build team will be selected to design and construct the project.
Thirteen bridges in the Bootheel Bridge Bundle are included in Governor Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.
Bootheel Bridge Bundle Project Goals
- Deliver the project within the program budget of $25.2 million on or before December 31, 2023.
- Use innovation to maximize the number of locations to be addressed while providing quality structures sensitive to location and traffic.
- Minimize public inconvenience through increased construction speed and flexibility in scheduling.
- Improve safety at each location.
