The Lafayette County Commission is working on four bridges under its care. Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott speak with Presiding Commissioner Harold Hoflander:
The Commission is planning for two government-funded bridges. One is at Oakland School Road, southeast of Odessa, and the other is on Catron Road between Waverly and Alma.
They are also looking to replace a road on Texas Prairie Road or on Bear Grove Road in conjunction with MoDOT. Construction could start as early as this fall. The cost will not be known for about another month.
The Lafayette County Commissioners are are also pleased that the Capital Improvement Tax was renewed this month. Hoflander said the 5-year tax passed with almost 83 percent approval, the highest ever. Those funds are divided between County road and bridge replacement, improvement to the county courthouse, road districts, and cities within the county.
