Shannon County: Route 19 Bridges at Round Spring

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is undertaking an environmental assessment (EA) and conducting public involvement to assess and refine conceptual alternatives to rehabilitate or replace the Route 19 bridges over the Current River and Spring Valley in Shannon County, Missouri, within the Ozark National Scenic Riverways. 

This study and public outreach efforts will allow refinement of the conceptual alternatives identified to accommodate engineering and environmental constraints and allow selection of a least environmentally damaging alternative while maximizing flexibility in engineering.

Overall, the purpose of the Route 19 Bridges at Round Spring EA is to improve the condition and functionality of the bridge crossings over the Current River and Spring Valley.
