Katy Trail Overpass Bridge

Location: Sedalia, Missouri   Client: Pettis County, Missouri
Services:Design, Construction Administration and Observation, Survey  Expertise: Bridge

Project Overview

Each year, the Katy Trail attracts 400,000 visitors along its 240-mile route from Clinton, Missouri, to Machens, Missouri, impacting the communities along its route. However, two old railroad bridges connecting the trail over Highway 50 in Sedalia, Missouri, were causing safety issues on the highway and on the trail, impacting the city and its visitors. McClure’s team provided the survey, design and construction observation for the project and assisted with the application for Federal Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) Grant that helped fund the project.

  • Assisted with application for the Federal Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) Grant used to aid funding for this project.
  • Utilized a prefabricated truss bridge to minimize impact to Hwy 50 during construction.
