Missouri to replace Long Creek Bridge with $36M span
Missouri – State transportation officials are ready to move out of the planning phase and advertise for bids in December to replace the Long Creek Bridge.
Long Creek Bridge
The estimated total project cost is $36 million to replace the bridge on Route 86 over the Long Creek arm of Table Rock Lake with a new bridge south of the existing structure, which was built in 1956. The new bridge is anticipated to be 32-feet wide, compared to the existing bridge width of 22 feet.
Missouri Department of Transportation plans call for building new sections of pavement to connect the bridge to Route 86 and installing new guardrails at the bridge ends.
Despite several repair efforts and patches, the bridge deck is in poor condition. The structural support truss system is also in poor condition and has reached the end of its life expectancy. Removal of the existing bridge will be included as part of the contract for construction of the new bridge.
Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2022 and conclude by summer 2024.
