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. The duration of the road closure has not yet been determined.
Q. What is the detour?
A. A signed detour is not planned at this time.
Q. Why not build a bypass?
A. Based on the cost/benefit ratio, 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).
