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.
