Manchester Bridge Design-Build

The Missouri Department of Transportation improved safety and mobility for thousands with a $63 million project that replaced the crumbling Manchester Bridge over I-70 in Kansas City.

 Crews used the innovative design-build contracting method that lets a single bidder combine the separate design and construction phases to speed up the project schedule and minimize the length of traffic disruptions. The new bridge design improved traffic flow and lane merging onto I-70 for thousands of football and baseball fans moving to and from the city’s nearby Truman Sports Complex.

Completing the project under traffic required extensive maintenance of traffic planning by the Clarkson Construction-HNTB design-build team.

The project got underway in 2013 and was completed in 2015.
