This is part of a larger project, I-44 Project Bridge Rebuild, to replace or rehabilitate 19 bridges on I-44 between Halltown and Sarcoxie. Some of the bridges are original to the construction of I-44 in the 1960s. Completion date for the project is December 15, 2021. However, the contractor has set a goal to have all major bridge work complete by the end of 2020.
