The I-44 Corridor Bridge Bundle Design-Build Project is a package of 32 bridges which are either on Interstate 44, over Interstate 44 or within 15 miles of Interstate 44 on adjacent routes in Jasper, Lawrence, Greene, Webster and Dallas counties.  Sixteen of the bridges are required to be in the final proposal and the remaining sixteen bridges are at the teams’ discretion.  Most of the locations require a bridge replacement with a few listed as long-term rehabilitations or re-decks.
