Work to Begin on Missouri Approach and Retaining Wall for New Champ Clark Bridge

HANNIBAL – Over the last several months, much of the work to build a new Champ Clark Bridge has been in the Mississippi River.  While work will continue to progress to build the piers for the new bridge, one element of construction will soon be more visible on land – the work on the Missouri approach, including the new retaining wall.  “The new bridge is being built just south of the existing bridge and will come into Missouri near the rock bluff behind the Ayerco station,” said Michael Massman, design-build coordinator for the construction company. “To make room for the new approach, crews will remove some of the bluff and secure the remaining portion to ensure it stays intact for decades to come,” he explained.

Bridge Project Update Featuring Historical Perspectives

HANNIBAL – The monthly Champ Clark Bridge project update will be held Saturday, April 28 at 10 a.m. at the project village, 120 S. Water Street, Louisiana.  Karen Daniels, a senior historic perseveration specialist with the Missouri Department of Transportation, is teaming up with local historian Brent Engel to share information about the construction of the 1928 Champ Clark Bridge and history of the area.  “We’ve had a lot of questions about the current bridge, so we thought it might be interesting to share a historical perspective, as well as give an update on the progress of the new bridge,” said MoDOT Resident Engineer Brandi Baldwin, P.E.

The update is open to the general public and lasts about 90 minutes.  For more information about the project, visit www.champclarkbridge.com.
