COOPER/BOONE COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a virtual open house on Thursday September 23 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. to discuss the construction of the new Interstate 70 Missouri River bridge near Rocheport.
In July, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission selected the Lunda Team as the design-build contractor for the project. Preliminary work is now underway along Interstate 70 in preparation for construction to begin later this year.
MoDOT staff and representatives from the Lunda Team will give a presentation that will provide more details on the project and be available for questions from those in attendance. The presentation will be repeated approximately every 20 minutes and will include renderings of what the bridges will look like, construction timelines, details on the replacement of the Route BB interchanges, and where motorists and residents will first see work on the project.
To view available information, or to register for the virtual public meeting on September 23, visit https://www.modot.org/RocheportBridge. The project presentation and details will also be posted on this web page following the meeting for those unable to attend the virtual public meeting.
Participants can log on or call in. All participants will have the opportunity to ask questions. Those joining on their computer will also be able to type in questions via the Question & Answer option, and a member of the project team will respond.
