Charlie Dye Bridge Project Moves Forward

Photo Courtesy of Jim Bush Workers are getting ready to pour concrete for the second pier of the new Charlie Dye Bridge, now under construction on Crowder Road west of Trenton. Federal funds through the Missouri Department of Transportation are paying for 80 percent of the cost, with Grundy County responsible for 20 percent of the projected $1.173 million cost. The county’s cost comes from a “soft match,”  which are credits the county has earned by doing some of its own work on other bridge projects and, as a result, no out-of-pocket county money is being used to finance the project. The bridge is anticipated to be open to traffic sometime in the fall.
