Design error delays Highway 114 bridge

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Work to replace the drainage ditch bridge on Highway 114 in Stoddard County, was originally expected to be completed in July. However, the opening of the bridge has been delayed.

"An error in the consultant's design of this bridge has been identified," said Missouri Department of Transportation field engineer Andy Meyer. He said the bridge is undersized and has structural issues. The bridge will be redesigned and replaced. During that time, the roadway will remain closed from Route KK to Highway 25. The new bridge will be open to traffic by the end of the year. Additionally, the project to replace a second bridge on Highway 114 in Stoddard County will be delayed until next year.
