PERRY COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - The Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during their regular meeting on Feb. 1 to replace the Route T bridge over Saline Creek located near Route N in Perry County.
The commission says the $956,288 contract was awarded to Widel, Inc. from Blackwater, Mo.
The project will include replacing the bridge. Weather permitting, the commission says construction is expected to start in spring 2012, with completion anticipated for October 2012.
As work to replace the bridge is underway, a one-lane temporary, low water crossing with an 18-foot width restriction will be in place. The crossing will also feature a signal for traffic flow.
Work zones will be marked with signs as improvements are made. Drivers are urged to use extreme caution while in the area and plan for possible delays.
