REQUESTOR: In compliance with 33 USC 408 (Section 14 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899; hereinafter Section 408), the Missouri Department of Transportation (MODOT) on behalf of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), requested permission to modify the Hannibal, Missouri, floodwall, an existing federally-authorized flood risk management project situated along Bear Creek and the Mississippi River.

LOCATION: The proposed project is located at bridge A1044 over Lyon Street, Warren Barrett Drive, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad and Bear Creek, in Hannibal, Missouri.

REQUESTOR’S PROPOSED ACTION: The proposed project would involve removing and replacing the existing horizontal alignment of Bridge A1044. The A1044 Bridge crosses over the Hannibal, MO Floodwall near Levee Station 31+98. The vertical profile will be modified to shorten the bridge. The southern end of the bridge will remain at the same location, but the northern end of the bridge will be located between Church and Lyon Streets. The new bridge will be lower than the existing bridge; however, no physical changes to the floodwall are being proposed.
