Rehabilitation Approved for Interstate 44 Bridge in Laclede County

LACLEDE COUNTY - Rehabilitation of the westbound Interstate 44 bridge over the Gasconade River Overflow, located west of the Pulaski County line, has been approved by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission (MHTC).

During its meeting on Wednesday, the MHTC awarded the project to Kozeny-Wagner, Inc., which submitted the low bid of $502,424.00.

The project consists of repairing the bridge railings, deck, bents and piers, and painting the structural steel. The work will require extended single lane closures. Motorists will be encouraged to use alternate routes while closures are in place or know to expect possible delays.

The project is expected to be completed by December 2021. Prior to work starting, MoDOT will alert the public about the project through signs, news releases and social media.

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.
