Project to Rehabilitate Webster County Route B
Bridge over James River Starts Week of March 5

Webster County – A project to replace the bridge deck or driving surface of the James River bridge on Webster County Route B south of Marshfield starts the week of March 5, the Missouri Department of Transportation said. 

During the week of March 5, drivers can expect one-lane traffic across the bridge with temporary signals regulating traffic while contractor crews do prep work ahead of the main project. From March 5 through 9, all lanes will be open during nighttime hours. 

Route B is scheduled to CLOSE at the bridge at 7 a.m. on Monday, March 12, to allow crews to remove the bridge deck and begin major repairs to the bridge. 

The contractor’s schedule calls for the work on Route B to be completed by the end of April/early May. 

During the closing of Route B, drivers can use a signed detour using Webster County Route OO, Route 38, Webster County Route A and Route PP. 

Once Route B is completed, crews will move to the James River bridge on Webster County Route KK and complete an identical project. However, the project on Route KK will not start until late May when local schools are out for summer vacation. 

The entire project is set for completion by early December 2018. However, contractor crews expect the project to be complete by early August. 

The prime contractor doing the work is Widel, Inc. of Blackwater, Mo. 

The estimated total project cost is $1.4 million.
