Rehabilitation of two bridges on US 61 over the US 24 Outer Road at the Taylor Interchange are included in a contract awarded today (FR) by the Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission.

Contracts were also awarded on a dozen other bridges including a bridge on Missouri 79 near Winfield. These are the first contracts awarded under Governor Mike Parson’s Focus on Bridges program approved by the Missouri General Assembly in May.

 

These bridges were already programmed in the state’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), the $50 million that originally would have been spent on these projects is now available to be used for other important projects. Those new projects will be identified by local planning partners in the 2021-2024 STIP.
