Praise for MoDOT in getting bridges rebuilt

I’ve been following and just read of the openings of the CC and PP highway bridges. Having worked for a government agency in another state in engineering, I laughed when MoDOT said the bridges would be built and open in mid-October. I thought the permits wouldn’t even be obtained in twice that time.

Boy, was I wrong!  This is what happens when government cuts through all the red tape, grants the funds and goes to work. My praise to the state and local agencies that got these major projects done. I am proud!
