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 has approved the contract, and MoDOT has 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 supports were formed and poured, and in the photo below (7/13), they are constructing the falsework that will support the concrete deck forms.
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.
