Schoolfield Road Bridge

The bridge over Williams Creek (between NE 144th Street and NE 148th Street) is closed because a broken support beam makes the bridge unsafe for any vehicle traffic. Construction to replace the bridge was delayed due to difficulties in acquiring needed right-of-way for the project. Design and engineering for a new bridge was done by Veenstra & Kimm Engineering of Liberty, Missouri. Seven firms bid on the project to replace the bridge. The project was awarded to Widel Inc. of Blackwater, Missouri. Bridge replacement begins the week of November 11, 2013, and the project will be completed by spring 2014.
