wpid-modot-logo-200x150.jpgMOUND CITY, Mo. – Plans are underway to replace the bridge on U.S. Route 59 over Davis Creek on the east side of Mound City.

The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a community briefing from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 23, at the Mound City R-1 Middle School to discuss and gather input regarding construction plans for the project. The meeting will be an open-house style format with no planned formal presentation. Designers and engineers from MoDOT will be on hand to answer questions and receive input.

The current bridge, built in 1929, carries approximately 730 vehicles per day and has exceeded its intended lifespan. Most of the state’s 10,376 bridges were designed and built to last 50 years. The project is currently scheduled to go out for bid in September 2017 and the bridge will be closed during its replacement.
