MO-Dot Announces Two Teams For 34 Design-Build Bridge Projects

The Missouri Department of Transportation has announced the two teams that will be charged with bringing up to 34 34 poor-condition bridges in north central Missouri up to current standards.

Known as the Northwest Bridge Bundle, most of the bridges are on low-volume roads with less than 400 vehicles per day, though some carry a much higher traffic load. The Northwest Bridge Bundle project will be built using the Design-Build delivery method which includes hiring one contracting team to complete the design work and build the highway improvement under one contract.

Two teams approved by the MoDOT executive team are the ESS Team of Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. and Bartlett & West, Inc., and Capital – Horner & Shifrin, consisting of Capital Paving and Construction, LLC and Horner & Shifrin, Inc.

The teams will now begin developing their proposals on the project.

MO-Dot’s Northwest Bridge Bundle team will release the Request for Proposals in July and the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission is expected to award the project at its December Commission meeting.
