Project Plans

PROJECT DETAILS

MoDOT will be replacing the bridge deck along MO Route 291 over Middle Big Creek . The work will include both pavement and guardrail replacements. During construction, the bridge will be closed and detours will be provided to motorists in the area.

This project will be let in combination with the bridge replacement on MO 58 over Big Creek in Pleasant Hill. 

This bridge is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.

TIMELINE & COST

Construction is scheduled to begin on April 8, 2021 with an anticipated completion date of June 2021.

The estimated cost for all construction is $1.2 million. This project is being funded with both federal (80%) and state (20%) funds. 

PROJECT UPDATES & DETOUR INFORMATION

The closure of the bridge is scheduled to be on April 8, 2021. During construction, MO Route 291 will be closed between MO 150 and MO 58. Construction is anticipated to be complete by approximately mid-June 2021. This work will include both pavement and guardrail replacements in the area. The north side of the closure along MO Route 291 will still have local access to Lake Winnebago Drive and the south side of the closure will be just north of local businesses so as not to disturb their operations.
