Route 124 Bridge Over Grindstone Creek Bridge Replacement
The replacement of the Missouri Route 124 bridge over Grindstone Creek in Boone County is underway. The work is not expected to impact traffic.
The new bridge, approximately one-half mile west of U.S. Route 63, is being built on new alignment immediately to the south of the existing bridge. Route 124 will remain open during construction of the new bridge until work is necessary to tie the new alignment to the existing roadway this summer. At that time, Route 124 will be closed for a short period of time to complete this final grading and paving work.
Replacement completed on July 29, 2019.
The project replaced the Missouri Route 124 bridge over Grindstone Creek, west of Route 63 in northern Boone County. The new bridge is six feet wider
The total cost is approximately $1 million.
Why was this work necessary?
The existing Grindstone Creek Bridge was built in 1932 and was 86 years old. The condition of the bridge reached a point where replacement is necessary.
