Introduction l.jpg


  • Weldon Spring is the site of a former chemical and radiological facility

  • This site included a manufacturing facility with disposal ponds on site

  • It also included a quarry that was used for disposal of waste

  • MoDOT has two highways, Routes D and Route 94 that traverse the area

  • MoDOT also has a maintenance lot next door to the disposal cell

Route 94 Culvert

  • Installed by the army under 40 feet of fill

  • Consists of corrugated metal that is rusting

  • Culvert is contaminated

  • Removal costs about $1 million

Working together l.jpg

Working Together

  • Missouri is the “Show Me State”

  • We need to see to accept

  • Several Missouri state agencies were involved

  • MoDOT, DOC, DNR, DNR Parks

  • DNR is the central contact

Central contact l.jpg

Central Contact

  • One central state contact

  • Everyone was kept informed

  • Easier to work with DOE and for DOE to work with the agencies

  • MoDOT concerned with protecting our employees and the public

Open comunicaton l.jpg

Open Comunicaton

  • MoDOT assigned one central contact within the department

  • Maintenance people were briefed

  • Design and construction to coordinate future efforts

  • DOE provided educational opportunities for employees

Future route d improvements l.jpg

Future Route D Improvements

  • Widen Route D next spring

  • Culvert replacement will be coordinated

  • Route D will be shut down for two days

  • MoDOT’s contractor will remove the overburden

  • DOE will remove the culverts and any contaminated soil

  • MoDOT will replace the fill and culverts and finish the project

Future route d improvements18 l.jpg

Future Route D Improvements

  • Disposal of the culverts will be determined

  • If they are not contaminated they will be recycled

  • DOE has offered to be present at the pre bid meeting to answer any questions from contractors

Future route 94 improvements l.jpg

Future Route 94 Improvements

  • Route 94 cannot be shut down

  • Shoulders are being added to Route 94
