The Champ Clark Bridge, built in 1928, is part of the U.S. Route 54 corridor and spans the Mississippi River connecting Louisiana, Missouri with the state of Illinois.

The Champ Clark Bridge Team, consisting of Missouri and Illinois Department of Transportation professional engineers, has completed their evaluation of the Statement of Qualifications (SOQs) submitted by potential design-build teams.  “These four teams will compete for the contract to oversee the design and construction of a new Champ Clark Bridge on U.S. 54 over the Mississippi River in Louisiana, Missouri,” said Champ Clark Bridge Project Director, Keith Killen. 

The following teams were selected to further develop their proposals on the project:

Alberici/Parsons
American Bridge/Garver
Lunda/Figg
Massman/HNTB

The Champ Clark Bridge Team will release the Request for Proposals (RFP) on March 1st, 2017.  “This means these four teams will receive our formal request to submit their proposals to design and construct the new bridge,” Killen explained.

“We have four very strong teams, and we are excited to work with them to develop their proposals over the next few months,” Killen said.  “When the project is awarded at the June 29th Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission meeting, we are certain the proposed bridge design will be something MoDOT and the community will be proud of,” he added.  

Killen added, “We had excellent participation, and thank everyone who expressed interest.”
