Since the bridge is not on the State System, look to Greene County for possible rehab, not MoDOT

With a rating of 44 and "Functionally Obsolete" instead of "Structurally Deficient", I would expect this bridge to be on MODOT's list for possible replacement but not near the top of the list.

The 2010 inspection report recommended rehabilitation instead of replacement, but with this type of bridge I think that could include widening.

Any plans in the near future to rehab or widen this bridge?

There is a lot more traffic now than in 2010.

This is a dangerous bridge when you are meeting big trucks and tractor trailers. Thanks Clifton
