Community Invited to Discuss Upcoming Nodaway County Bridge Projects

Plans are underway to replace two Nodaway County bridges and the community is invited to discuss the projects.

The Missouri Department of Transportation will host both a virtual and phone-in public meeting to gather community feedback regarding the planned replacements of the U.S. Route 136 Mozingo Creek and Long Branch bridges, located east of Maryville.

The projects are currently scheduled to be let for contractor bidding in August.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, MoDOT has temporarily suspended all in-person meetings, but is still seeking public input on planned projects.

In place of a face-to-face informational meeting, MoDOT has three avenues by which members of the public may ask questions or leave comments.

You can visit the projects’ virtual public meeting space at

There visitors will find project information, detour route plans, a webform to leave comments or ask questions, and a way to sign up for project-specific email updates.

You can also participate in one of two planned call-in sessions.

The call-in sessions will be held Tuesday, March 2 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. and from 4-6 p.m.

Participants can call 816-387-2483 during those hours to have an individual conversation with the project manager overseeing the design.

If the line is busy, please leave a message or call back later.

Finally, you can mail in your comments to The Missouri Department of Transportation at 3602 North Belt Highway in St. Joseph, MO.

All comments must be postmarked by March 5.
