Design/Build Team Awarded “FARM” Bridge Contract
MoDOT selected a team for the design-build of 31 FARM bridges in northern Missouri. The Lehman-Wilson will replace the weight-restricted and poor condition bridges in northern Missouri over the next two and a half years through the Fixing Access to Rural Missouri (FARM) Bridge Program

MoDOT provides the project goals, budget and schedule and the contractor team completes the work. This technique has been known to significantly save time and provide cost savings.
