The Missouri Department of Transportation held a public meeting on November 6, 2017 to provide preliminary plans for replacing the Interstate 44 Outer Road bridge over the Gasconade River, west of Hazelgreen. The work is currently scheduled to begin in the summer of 2018. Here are the materials presented at the public meeting:

The Missouri Department of Transportation presented the following proposed options for moving forward with replacing the Interstate 44 outer road bridge over the Gasconade River near Hazelgreen at a public meeting on December 14, 2016, in Lebanon:

  1. Gasconade River Bridge PhotoDo nothing.
  2. Rehabilitate the existing structure using either MoDOT or contract workers.
  3. Build a new, standard bridge in the same place as the existing structure.
  4. Construct a new, standard bridge nearby.
  5. Build a connection between the north outer roadway segments using the existing bridge piers from a previous rehabilitation project.
  6. Construct a new truss bridge (similar to the current bridge) in the same location as the existing bridge.

Employees with MoDOT’s Historic Preservation Unit were also on hand to explain the federal Section 106 Process, which identifies historic properties, analyzes potential effects on them and determines what action will need to be taken to avoid, minimize or mitigate those effects. More information on historic preservation and the Section 106 Process can be found at www.modot.mo.gov/ehp/HistoricPreservation.htm.

MoDOT closed the Laclede County bridge on Dec. 18, 2014, after an inspection determined it was unsafe for travel. In July of 2016, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission approved funding for a new bridge.
