ABOUT THE PROJECT
When complete, the new Mississippi River Bridge will be the first bridge connecting downtown St. Louis and southwestern Illinois in more than 40 years. The project will relocate one of three interstates (I-70) from the Poplar State Bridge to the MississippiRiver Bridge to relieve traffic congestion and crashes. With a main span of 1,500 feet, the new Mississippi River Bridge will be the third longest cable-stayed bridge in the United States.
ABOUT THE PRESENTER
As deputy project director for the Mississippi River Bridge Project, Randy Hitt, P.E., manages construction progress and adherence to budget. In prior years, Hitt oversaw the construction of several long-span bridges over the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, including MoDOT's first cable-stayed bridge in Cape Girardeau, MO.
