Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q. Why is MoDOT closing the road during construction?

A. Closing the road during the bridge replacement saves taxpayer money by allowing the contractor to work more efficiently. This will result in a shorter construction period.

 

Q. How long will the road be closed?

A. Through mid-December

 

Q. What is the detour?

A. A signed detour  is not planned.

 

Q. Why not build a bypass?

A. Based on the cost/benefit ration, building a bypass would not be a prudent use of taxpayer funds. A bypass also could have negative impacts and disruption to private property.

 

Q. Who can I contact if I have further questions?

A. Questions about the project may be directed to MoDOT Customer Service at 888 ASK MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
