Bike bridge could be done as soon as April 1, MoDOT says
Friday, March 18, 2011
If the weather cooperates, MoDOT officials said Thursday they hope to have the finishing touches done to the pedestrian and bike path on the northbound Missouri River Bridge by the April 1 deadline.
The official grand opening is now planned for 10:30 a.m. April 8.
Sidewalk work and the placement of barriers at the Main Street on ramp are some of the last things being done.
Work on the $6.7 million path began in May 2010. It was paid for by MoDOT, Jefferson City, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the Missouri State Parks Foundation.
