Katy Trail Overpass Bridge officially opens


Mayor Stephen Galliher holds one end of the ribbon crossing the Katy Trail Overpass Bridge as Eastern County Commissioner Brent Hampy cuts the ribbon. The bridge officially opened for pedestrian and bike traffic Thursday afternoon. The $346,000 project was initiated in May 2013 by Hampy and was a joint effort by Pettis County, MoDOT, the City of Sedalia and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. According to Hampy, the bridge was measured at a height of 18 feet, 10 inches, making it safer for both road traffic and pedestrians. The project work began in mid-March and was completed during the first week of June.
