MoDOT Holding Online Public Meeting for Phelps County Bridge Replacement

PHELPS COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Transportation is holding an online public meeting to share information about an upcoming project that will replace the Phelps County Route B bridge over the Bourbeuse River.

The bridge is located approximately 10 miles north of St. James on Route B and three miles south of Redbird.

The public meeting will run from Nov. 9-24 at: http://www.modot.org/central/PhelpsRouteBBridge.htm.

The Route B bridge was built in 1934 and will be replaced by a structure that is six feet wider than the existing bridge, improving safety for motorists. Construction is scheduled to take place between March and August of 2018.

The route will not be closed during a majority of the construction time because the new bridge will be built adjacent to the existing bridge. The roadway will be closed for 35 days near the end of the project to connect the new bridge to the existing roadway. Motorists will be encouraged to use alternate routes during this phase of the construction, and those alternate routes can be found on the project page listed above.

The total project cost is an estimated $2.3 million.

If you would like to have more information or to comment on the project, please visit or contact Transportation Project Manager Danica Stovall-Taylor at (573) 526-8099 or Danica.Stovall-Taylor@modot.mo.gov.
