HANNIBAL, MO – The new bridge on Route E in Lewis County over Derrahs Branch opened to traffic today, making this the eleventh bridge on the Fixing Access to Rural Missouri (FARM) Bridge Program.
“We are very pleased with the progress being made in this design-build program and have had very few challenges which helps us stay on track to complete all 31 bridges by the end of 2023,” said Missouri Department of Transportation Project Director Jeff Gander.
Lehman-Wilson is the contractor for the FARM Bridge Program.
The full list of bridges, included those that are already completed, can be found on the FARM Bridge Program web page.
With an increased number of highway work zones in Missouri, it is super important all drivers pay attention every second while driving, especially through a work zone.  Be informed of your route by checking the MoDOT Traveler Information Map before you leave to see if you will encounter any work zones.  You can also subscribe to counties, various routes or even projects online at Customer Service Signon (  Be sure you and all your passengers are buckled up, and please put the phone down while driving.
