          MoDOT sponsors the contest as part of Missouri’s “No MOre Trash!” campaign to raise awareness and discourage littering. The contest encourages students from kindergarten through eighth grade to join the fight against litter by decorating and displaying a large trashcan with the “No MOre Trash!” logo and a litter prevention message using a variety of creative mediums.

Public invited to discuss bridge projects

MoDOT is hosting four open house informational meetings

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is planning a project to replace or rehabilitate up to 34 poor-condition bridges in north central Missouri, bringing them up to current standards. Known as the Northwest Bridge Bundle, most of these bridges are on low-volume roads with less than 400 vehicles per day, though some carry a much higher traffic load. These vital bridges which connect rural communities and their citizens have been in place, on average, for 71 years. (To learn which bridges may be included in the project, visit the project’s webpage at

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.

“MoDOT provides the project goals, budget, and completion date and the contractor team completes the work,” said Project Director Michael Marriott. “We expect to see significant time and cost savings using design-build for these projects.”

The public is invited to a series of four open-house style public information meetings. These meetings will identify the 34 bridges currently being proposed for inclusion in the project, anticipated construction and traffic impacts at each bridge, and a broad overview of the planned schedule. The open house format allows the public to come at any time during the advertised hours, gather information about the project, speak one-on-one with project personnel, ask questions, and leave comments. The information provided at each meeting will be the same, so attendees may choose the date and location most convenient for them:

Tuesday, March 7 – Keytesville High School, 27247 Mo-5, Keytesville – 4 to 6 p.m.

Tuesday, March 28 – Putnam County High School, 803 S. 20th Street, Unionville – 4 to 6 p.m.
