Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Unsafe bridge near Calhoun?


Heading west on the trail into Calhoun you pass under a MO 52 bridge. Yesterday I noticed that there are large sections of the concrete falling off and huge gaps in the concrete guardrail. I don't remember seeing that before.

Is that bridge safe? If I was a Missouri taxpayer I would make a call.

Ha Ha! After I posted this last year MO put a "Safe and Sound" sign up on this bridge but they are now tearing it down!!!

Go back to your village Brad. They need you.

The Safe and Sound sign designates that it is a bridge slated for replacement as part of a statewide program. But, the first time we saw one, we thought it was funny too...

RE: anonymous - what?

RE: sharonbikes - Thanks for the info, and that makes sense now! Several states reviewed the safety of their bridges after the Minnesota I-35 collapse and I thought MO was saying this bridge was certified "safe and sound". I didn't realize they were replacing the defective ones to ensure all are safe.

I have seen quite a few bridges being replaced in MO lately.
