Celebrating the first anniversary of the nation’s first recovery act project!

On Feb. 17, 2009, the Missouri Department of Transportation made history by becoming the first state in the nation to have signed a contract and started construction on a transportation project funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Within minutes of President Barack Obama signing the economic recovery bill one year ago, MoDOT went to work to replace a Depression-era bridge over the Osage River bridge near Tuscumbia.

One year later, it’s a great symbol of progress.  Work on the bridge is supporting 240 direct, indirect and induced jobs and is more than halfway complete.

  • Excavation work and portions of the bridge deck and approaches on both the north and south sides of the river are complete.

  • Work is under way on the foundation. Soon girders will be placed and the deck spanning the river will be constructed

MoDOT was ready to go with critical transportation projects, and we delivered.  We have remained committed to putting your tax dollars to use as quickly as possible to create jobs, improve roads and save lives!  For more information about Missouri’s ARRA projects, go to www.modot.org/arra.
