Online and phone-in public meeting for Holt County Interstate 29 bridge project

MOUND CITY, Mo. – Members of the public can go online or call to provide their input regarding a project to replace the deck of a bridge on Interstate 29 near Craig which goes over U.S. Route 59 (Exit 92 at Craig). During much of the construction of the new bridge deck, U.S. Route 59 under the bridge will be closed. I-29 will remain open as construction will be staged with traffic head-to-head in the open lanes. The Missouri Department of Transportation is currently in the planning stages of the project and welcomes public input.
The online public meeting with information regarding the project timeline, plans and planned signed detour route can be found at: https://www.modot.org/holt-county-i-29-bridge-deck-replacement-over-us-route-59. A comment form at the bottom of the webpage will be active through Oct. 5, 2020, to gather comments, questions and signups for project-specific updates via email.
In addition to the project webpage, a MoDOT project expert will be available to answer questions and receive community feedback during two call-in sessions:
Tuesday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to noon
Thursday, Oct. 1, from 4 to 6 p.m.
To participate in the phone-in public meeting, call 816-387-2411 during the times listed above and the project expert will be able to answer questions and record any input you may have. If directed to voicemail, please try calling back again or leave a message with your contact information and our project expert will return your phone call.
Currently scheduled to be let for contractor bidding in October 2021, the project would most likely be constructed during the 2022 construction season. The bridge is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.

Watch for slow-moving farm vehicles on Missouri’s roadways.

JEFFERSON CITY – This autumn, the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety wants to remind motorists to be on the lookout for slow-moving farm vehicles. Please remember that farmers are just doing their jobs when moving equipment from field to field. It’s important that we be patient and drive carefully around farm vehicles.
Non-farm motorists may not immediately recognize farm equipment on roadways or be aware of the special hazards they present. Lighting and reflector locations on tractors, combines and other farm equipment are different from other motor vehicles. Loads on farm vehicles may be wider than other vehicles, which present special hazards for other motorists when left, right, rear and front projections are not easily recognizable.
The most common collisions occur when the approaching motorist hits a farm vehicle from behind (rear-end collision), or when a passing motorist hits a farm vehicle that is attempting to make a wide left turn (left sideswipe).
The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety recommends these simple tips when driving around slow-moving farm machinery:
Be mindful that it’s harvest season and keep an eye out for machinery.
Be patient and remember that farmers are just doing their jobs.
Loads on farm vehicles may be wider than other vehicles, which present unique conditions for other motorists.
Always pass on the left and only when you have clear sight distance.
Always wear your seat belt. It’s your best defense in any traffic crash.
Keep your full attention on the road and put your cell phone down.
Buckle up and put your phone down. For more information, visit www.saveMOlives.com. #BUPD

JACKSON/CLAY COUNTIES – The Missouri Department of Transportation will make the following traffic change as part of a two-year bridge rehabilitation project on the I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River.
Crews will close the right lane of northbound I-435 between Front St. and Route 210 from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26 for bridge work
 
*Note: Crews typically work this area from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
 
Road closures in this area has the potential for creating significant traffic slowdowns. We encourage motorists to plan ahead.
 
This is all part of a project to replace the bridge deck, reinforce the structural steel and repair the substructure of the aging bridge. The I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River, located just south of Worlds of Fun was built in 1972 and is showing signs of aging and wear. The structure sees about 81,500 vehicles each day. This rehab project is slated to be complete by December 2021.     
Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.

ST. LOUIS – Drivers will need have to wait until the end of the year to once again use the ramp from southbound Interstate 270 and eastbound Interstate 44 to eastbound Route 366 (Watson Road) the Missouri Department of Transportation announced today .
The ramp bridge construction was delayed earlier this summer when crews determined that the exiting condition of the rock bluffs at either end of the bridge would not be sufficient to construct the bridge as designed.
The updated design has been completed and work has restarted on reconstructing the bridge.  Crews estimate that the bridge should reopen by the end of December 2020, weather permitting.
The ramp closed just after Memorial Day to remove and replace the bridge. Drivers currently use Lindbergh as a detour from the interstate to eastbound Watson Road.

LPA Basic Training – Person of Responsible Charge Three Part Series

Missouri LTAP Hosted with MoDOT and FHWA (Federal Highway Administration):

Participants must attend all 3 sessions and pass a test to be certified as a Person of Responsible Charge. A link will be emailed to each attendee after Part III upon verification of attendance of all parts required to test.

Projects administered by local agencies using Title 23 federal funds require the local agency to have a “qualified person of responsible charge” who is a public employee accountable for the project. This 4.5-hour training will provide the attendee the basic knowledge of the federal-aid process to perform the following duties and functions:

Administer federal-aid project activities, including those dealing with cost, time, adherence to contract requirements, construction quality and scope;
Maintain familiarity of day-to-day project operations, including project safety issues;
Make or participate in decisions about changed conditions or scope changes requiring change orders or supplemental agreements;
Visit and review the project on a frequency commensurate with the magnitude and complexity of the project;
Review financial processes, transactions and documentation to ensure safeguards are in place to minimize fraud, waste and abuse; and
Direct project staff, agency or consultant, to carry out project administration and contract oversight, including proper documentation.
Be aware of the qualifications, assignments and on-the-job performance of the agency and consultant staff at all stages of the project.
Must sign all project documents including but not limited to agreements, certifications, plans, change orders etc.

Online and phone-in public meeting for Holt County Interstate 29 bridge project

MOUND CITY, Mo. – Plans are underway to replace the deck of a bridge on Interstate 29 near Craig. The Missouri Department of Transportation is hosting both an online and phone-in public meeting to gather community feedback regarding the planned deck replacement of the I-29 bridge over U.S. Route 59 at Exit 92 (Craig). During much of the construction of the new bridge deck, U.S. Route 59 under the bridge will be closed. I-29 will remain open as construction will be staged with traffic head-to-head in the open lanes.
The project is currently scheduled to be let for contractor bidding in October 2021 and would most likely be constructed during the 2022 construction season. The bridge is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.
The online public meeting with information regarding the project timeline, plans and planned signed detour route can be found at: https://www.modot.org/holt-county-i-29-bridge-deck-replacement-over-us-route-59. A comment form at the bottom of the webpage will be active through Oct. 5, 2020, to gather comments, questions and signups for project-specific updates via email.
In addition to the project webpage, a MoDOT project expert will be available to answer questions and receive community feedback during two call-in sessions:
Tuesday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to noon
Thursday, Oct. 1, from 4 to 6 p.m.
To participate in the phone-in public meeting, call 816-387-2411 and the project expert will be able to answer questions and record any input you may have. If directed to voicemail, please try calling back again or leave a message with your contact information and our project expert will return your phone call.
