SDDOT Searching for Engineering Consultant for Bridge Study

 

PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) is searching for a qualified engineering consulting team to perform a structure location-and-type study for the Highway 14/ 83 / 34 bridge over the Missouri River between Pierre and Fort Pierre.

 

This planning study will determine the location and type of structure that will eventually replace the current bridge over the Missouri River connecting Pierre and Fort Pierre.

 

The study will also involve completing the environmental process necessary to advance the study’s findings to the design phase.

 

The actual bridge replacement project is anticipated to be completed sometime between the 2020 to 2025 timeframe.

 

The search for a consulting team is underway now. All interested consulting teams have until Dec. 14, 2012 to respond to SDDOT’s request for statement of interest, which is posted on the agency’s website at http://www.sddot.com/transportation/highways/planning/specialstudies/.

 

For more information, contact Steve Gramm at 605-773-6641.
