FAUCETT, Mo. – The Route DD Bridge over I-29 is open as of Thursday evening.
Emery Sapp and Sons of Columbia, working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, closed the bridge to all traffic Aug. 25, for a bridge replacement project.
While the bridge over the interstate will open, there is still work to do. The contractor has tentatively scheduled ramp work for Monday, Nov. 13. They plan to close one ramp at a time for paving. The plan is to close the southbound off ramp first at approximately 7:30 a.m., followed in order by the southbound on ramp, northbound off ramp and finally the northbound on ramp. As with all planned work, schedules are subject to change.
There may be other work both on and off the roadway around the bridge and the ramps as the contractor completes the project. MoDOT encourages all motorists to slow down, buckle up, eliminate distractions and drive safely to ensure motorists and workers alike are able to Arrive Alive.
