Howell Street and Cape Rock Drive Summer Road Closures Begin May 28

howell-street-bridgeContractor Zoellner Construction from Perryville, Mo. will begin working on the Howell Street bridge near Jane Drive, starting at 7 a.m. on May 28.

Work will close the bridge for approximately five weeks, weather permitting. Tasks will include removing the existing box culvert structure and replacing it with a new single span bridge structure.

The contract amount is $508,000, and funding was made available by the 2008 Parks and Recreation Stormwater Tax.

Once the Howell Street bridge is complete, possibly in early July, work will begin on the Cape Rock Drive bridge near Dennis Scivally Park.

cape-rock-drive-bridgeThe City’s 2010 traffic study data indicates that over 7,000 people use the Cape Rock Drive bridge every day.

Detour signs will be set up to guide motorists around the work area, and motorists are asked to use caution and consider using alternate routes.
