Gentry County Route T Bridge Over Brushy Creek To Close

The next northern Missouri bridge set for replacement under the FARM (Fixing Access to Rural Missouri) Bridge Program is scheduled to close tomorrow.

The Gentry County Route T bridge over Brushy Creek, located east of Route A, west of the city of McFall, is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, June 7. The bridge is expected to remain closed though October.

The FARM Bridge Program will be replacing 31 deficient bridges on low-volume routes in northern Missouri that are weight-restricted, in poor condition, on timber piles, and/or are one-lane but carry two-way traffic.

Lehman-Wilson was awarded the design-build contract by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission at its meeting in May 2022 to replace the bridges. Design-build is a project delivery method in which one contracting team is selected to design and build the highway improvement under one contract. MO-Dot provides the project goals, budget and schedule and the contractor team completes the work.

The Brushy Creek Bridge was built in 1932 and has a traffic volume of approximately 36 vehicles per day.
