The Oak Drive Bridge over Two-Mile Creek is being replaced in 2018. The City obtained a federal grant, by which 80% of the costs will be reimbursed.
Project Update and Schedule
This project bid on 3/2/18, and the low bidder was Kozeny-Wagner. The Board of Alderman approved the contract, and MoDOT granted Concurrence in Award. The preconstruction meeting took place 5/3. The project kicked off with tree removal on 5/29 and bridge demolition on 5/31. The bridge debris was then removed and piles were driven. The piers were formed and poured, then the deck was poured Wednesday 7/25. The corral rails (walls) are scheduled to be poured 8/7 and the eastern approach slab is scheduled for 8/8. However, with rain in the forecast 8/7, both pours may be delayed.
During the closure, the gate to Crystal Lake Park will remain open, allowing access via Country Club Drive. Drivers should proceed north on Bopp Road to Country Club Drive, then head east on Country Club Drive to Oak Drive, turning right (south). The work should take around 3 months.
