The Burns & McDonnell Transportation Group has been selected to design the Daniel Boone Bridge; to complete first phase final design on the Lewis & Clark Viaduct; and to complete an EIS for U.S. 69 bridges.
The Burns & McDonnell Transportation Group and the St. Louis office were selected to design the Daniel Boone Bridge over the Missouri River in St. Louis. The major Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) initiative will include design of the new bridge, rehabilitation of an existing river crossing and significant approach roadway work.
The Transportation Group was also selected for first phase final design of the westbound structures on the Lewis & Clark Viaduct Reconstruction by the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT). The bridge, part of Interstate 70 west of downtown Kansas City, is about 3,000 feet long and includes 375-foot spans over the Kansas River. Later phases will include realignment of I-70 and multiple new ramp bridges.
Burns & McDonnell has also been tapped to complete an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for U.S. 69 bridges over the Missouri River in Kansas City. MoDOT, in cooperation with KDOT and the Federal Highway Administration, is evaluating the bridges for replacement or rehabilitation. EIS studies began in September 2012 and will conclude in spring 2014.
