U.S. Route 36 Missouri River Bridges Rehabilitation Project Moving Into Next Phases

A Missouri Department of Transportation project to place a new overlay, repair substructure elements, and replace guardrail at the Pony Express Bridges over the Missouri River on U.S. Route 36 continues in Saint Joseph.

Contractors from Comanche Construction Inc., working with MoDOT, began the rehabilitation project in late January.

This week, crews are moving into the next phase of construction, which will involve moving the eastbound bridge barrier for a traffic shift, shifting eastbound traffic from the passing to the driving lane, and reopening the ramp from eastbound U.S. Route 36 to Route 759 (Stockyards Expressway).

The 12-foot width restriction will remain in place.

Motorists may experience delays for the duration of the project.

All construction and closures should wrap up on or before December 1.

All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
