Anderson School Road Bridge nears completion


Workers from APAC of Columbia and the Pettis County Road Department work Thursday afternoon to complete the Anderson School Road Bridge. The bridge is set to receive its final inspection Tuesday morning. “We’re going to have this completed ahead of schedule,” Eastern Commissioner Brent Hampy said. The bridge is used by three school districts: Sedalia 200, Cole Camp and Smithton and it was important to county officials to have the work completed prior to the start of school.


Mike Bobbitte, of APAC, places an erosion barrier on the bank of Walnut Creek beside the Anderson School Road Bridge. Crews were doing final grading before seeding and mulching the banks. Workers were hoping to complete those steps of the project Thursday before the final clean-up and inspection.

Hensley and county employee Kelly Williams were at the site to do shoulder and clean-up work at the site. “They have the guard rails up and we’ve just got a little more work to do here,” Hensley said. “Hopefully, it will be done (Thursday).”


Jeff Clancy operates a bobcat to back fill the asphalt areas near the recently constructed Anderson School Road Bridge. Clancy is a bridge supervisor, but said he wanted to help out to get the job done. “We all really work side by side,” Clancy said. “I just want to help out wherever I am needed.”
