Construction underway on Main Street Road Bridge in Pettis County


Jason Brown of Widel Construction positions an attachment to a crane Tuesday afternoon that is used to set pillions. The steel pillions will form the base for the Main Street Road Bridge that spans Coon Creek in Western Pettis County. The bridge is one of four being replaced by the County Commission this year. According to Herb Argenbright, foreman on the project, the work on the bridge should be completed by the end of the year if the weather permits.


A 24-foot steel pillion is lowered into place by crane operator Brad Chapmin of Widel Construction. The pillions were driven in the ground 10 feet. The deck of the bridge will be anchored to the pillions as part of the Main Street Road Bridge construction. The bridge is used by both the Sedalia School District 200 and the Dresden School District to transport students to and from school.

Jason Brown climbs the ladder structure of the crane operated by Brad Chapmin to guide the 24-foot steel pillions into place. Each end of the Main Street Road Bridge will be supported by six of the 24-foot steel structures. The cost of the project is $300,000 and is funded through a 80/20 matching MoDOT Grant. More than 400 vehicles use the bridge each day, according to the County Commission.
