MoDOT is announcing today (Thursday) the design-build contractor for the new Missouri River Bridge on I-70 at Rocheport.

The Lunda Team will be in charge of designing and building the new $240 million project comprised of two bridges, each three lanes wide.

The new bridge will replace the span built in 1960, which will remain open during construction that is expected to begin later this year and be complete by the end of 2024.

12 million vehicles cross the bridge annually.
