Multiple bridge projects planned in southeast Missouri
Fifteen bridges in southeast Missouri are one step closer to repair. MoDOT selected four teams to compete for the design-build contract to repair or replace the bridges.
The Bootheel Bridge Bundle project includes 13 bridges from Gov. Mike Parson’s Focus on Bridges program.
MoDOT will issue the request for proposal next month, and construction could begin as early as this summer.
