Safe and Sound Set to Begin in the St. Louis Region

The Missouri Department of Transportation will begin improving 802 of the state’s most worn out bridges this winter. All 802 bridges will be improved by the end of October 2014.

In the St. Louis region, there are 23 bridges that will either be rehabbed or replaced. Five are in Franklin County, twelve in Jefferson County, five in St. Louis County and one in St. Charles County.

At its November meeting, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded approximately $1.47 million to the lowest bidder for bridge rehabilitation on five Safe and Sound bridges in Jefferson County. Work will start in December 2008.

Safe and Sound signs have been posted on all St. Louis area bridges designated for rehab or replacement.
