HANNIBAL – The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission has awarded the improvement project contract for replacement of the bridge over McLean’s Creek on Route 79 in Lincoln County.
Bleigh Construction Company submitted the low bid of $821,331 and was awarded the contract for improvements last week.
This bridge is included in Gov. Parson’s “Focus on Bridges” program passed by the Missouri General Assembly during its 2019 session. The program appropriated $50 million in state general revenue to fund 45 high priority bridge projects throughout the state. Work on the project will take place in 2020. When a start date is established, MoDOT will alert the public about the project through signs, news releases and social media.
