Missouri DOT Announces Early Completion of Bootheel Bridge Project

Oct. 25, 2023
The project marks the first design-build in the district

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) recently announced the early completion of the Bootheel Bridge Bundle project thanks to a design-build delivery method.

“The Bootheel Bridge Bundle was the first design-build project in MoDOT’s Southeast District,” said MoDOT Project Director Benji Philpot to KFVS 12 News.

“One of our goals was to have the improvements completed no later than Dec. 31, 2023,” he said. “The project team exceeded that expectation by completing this project two months ahead of schedule.”

MoDOT announced the bridge’s official opening following the Route A bridge over Whitewater River in Cape Girardeau County.

The design-build project delivered 17 bridge improvement projects to southeast Missouri. Thirteen bridges in the Bootheel Bridge Bundle were also included in Governor Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state.

The Robertson Contractors Team, headquartered in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, was selected to design and construct the $21.3 million project in August 2020. The team is comprised of Robertson Contractors, Inc., Horner & Shifrin and Penzel Construction Company, Inc.
