"This is the first design-build bridge project completed in Cape Girardeau County," said Southeast Regional Field Engineer Andy Meyer. "It is also the first bridge in Missouri to use the Super Cor Box structure, which is a prefabricated metal arch structure with concrete retaining walls."

Design-build bridges are those that have been targeted for a total replacement. There are more than 550 bridges statewide included in the design-build contract, including the Route 61 bridge.

For more information on the dedication ceremony, please contact MoDOT's Customer Service Center at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
