COOPER/BOONE COUNTIES, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Transportation will host a virtual open house Thursday. Back in July, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission selected a contractor to design and build on Interstate 70 Missouri River Bridge near Rocheport. Preliminary work is now underway to prepare for the construction work to begin later this year. The virtual open house will consist of MoDOT staff and representatives from the contractor team to give a presentation to provide details about the project. The virtual meeting will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23. To register for the public meeting, click here.
