MO Route 19 Realignment & Bridge over Norfolk Southern Railroad Complete
Construction is complete on a new overpass on Route 19 in Montgomery County. Boonslick Regional Planning Commission secured $2.25 million in Community Development Block Grant funding for the project, while the Missouri Department of Transportation’s share of the cost was just over $3.4 million. The project allowed for the replacement of a low-clearance crossing on Route 19 with a bridge that carries traffic over the Norfolk Southern Railroad. BRPC Project Coordinator Chuck Eichmeyer recently took some photos of the new bridge and also made a short video clip which you can see below. The improvements, which greatly improved safety, are quite evident when compared with photos from the site before the project started. BRPC appreciates its partnership with MoDOT as we work together to improve transportation in the Boonslick region.
