SK bridge work is complete
Traffic delays in Shell Knob will be a thing of the past as construction on the Route 39 bridge over Table Rock Lake ends.
According to the Missouri Department of Transportation, the project was scheduled for completion on Monday, May 20.
In celebration, the Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with MoDOT, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in honor of the project's conclusion at noon on Wednesday, May 22.
Traffic across the bridge was reduced to one lane as work was done to replace the bridge deck, repaint sections of the bridge and repair the girders and other structures underneath the bridge's deck.
The project, which carried a $5.4 million price tag, began on Sept. 4, 2012, and met its scheduled completion goal of Memorial Day.
Prime contractor for the project was Phillips Grading and Construction, of Boonville.
