Final phase of Cameron bridge project begins tomorrow

A bridge deck replacement project in Cameron that rerouted traffic last year has one final phase to complete. Crews will begin setting the rigging, requiring the closure of one lane in each direction on Interstate-35.

Throughout the final phase, the contractor plans to work during overnight hours Monday through Saturday and around the clock Sunday. The work had been scheduled to start April 1, but had to be postponed. Contractors working with the Missouri Department of Transportation now plan to begin tomorrow.

During the work, I-35 and U.S. Route 36 may be reduced to one lane in each direction around the bridges so crews can access the structural steel girders under the new bridge decks. After the rigging is set, the girders will be blasted clean, and then recoated with a high quality paint that will help prevent deterioration over the life of the bridge.

The blasting and painting portions of the final phase have not yet been scheduled.
