Briefing to Discuss Route 91 Bridge Replacement in Scott County

SIKESTON-The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold an open-house community briefing from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8, to discuss upcoming improvements to the Route 91 bridge over Drainage Ditch 2 in Scott County. The briefing will be held at MoDOT's District Office in Sikeston, located at 2675 N. Main.

"Visitors can stop-by anytime between 4 and 6 p.m. to discuss the details with a member of the project team and provide their comments," said Project Manager Eric Krapf.

The project will include replacing the bridge with a wider structure. Additionally, the bridge will feature lower rails to better accommodate agricultural traffic.

As work is underway, the roadway will remain closed. A contract for the project is expected to be awarded in April 2012. Work could begin as early as spring 2012, with completion in mid-summer 2012.
