Public meeting scheduled on Schifferdecker bridge replacement plan

(From the City of Joplin)

In 2019, the City of Joplin will be replacing the bridge over Turkey Creek, located along North Schifferdecker Avenue. To learn more about the project, an open house public meeting has been set for Tuesday, January 8. It will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Joplin’s Athletic Complex field house, 3301 W. 1st Street.

During the meeting, the public including area property owners can meet representatives of Hartman & Company, the project’s construction contractor. Members of Allgeier Martin and Associates, the engineering consultant, will also be available with the final design plans and to answer questions.

Representatives from Hartman and Company will provide information about the construction schedule and plans for traffic control during the project. Citizens are encouraged to stop by any time during these hours to view the plans and ask questions about the upcoming project.

The bridge is located on North Schifferdecker where it connects with West Zora Street. The project is funded through the 3/8 cent City of Joplin Capital Improvement Sales Tax, renewed by voters in 2014, in addition to funding from the Jasper County Special Road District, and the Jasper County Commission. This new bridge construction is necessary to meet future traffic needs in the northern section of Joplin.
