Clarkson Builds Bridges

Beginning with mid-1900s projects like the Paseo Bridge, to modern replacement the Christopher S. Bond Bridge , Clarkson Construction has been one of Kansas City’s busiest bridge construction companies over the past century.

Clarkson Construction’s vast resources in both manpower and machinery allow Clarkson to self-perform over 90 percent of the services required for a complete bridge construction or repair project, including:

  • Grading/Site Development
  • Foundations and Footings
  • Substructure abutments columns and caps
  • Structural Steel or Concrete Beams
  • Superstructure Deck/Driving Surface
  • Concrete Approach Paving
  • Retaining Walls
  • Reinforced Concrete Box Culverts

And of course we subcontract and oversee any specialty services to ensure maximum quality of the final project, all of which is managed from beginning to end by Clarkson Construction.

Our Bridge Construction Projects in Kansas City

  • Paseo Bridge – Clarkson was involved at the very start of construction on the Paseo Bridge in 1953 that Clarkson began to build the sweeping approach to the bridge at 6th and Cherry Streets. Then in 2005, Clarkson rehabilitated the 51-year old bridge, re-opening two months ahead of schedule until its demolition in 2010.
  • I-35 and I-670 – Involved the reconstruction of several bridges and pavement replacement in Kansas City’s downtown loop.
  • Utility Bridge over I-670 – New utility bridge to service new facilities in downtown Kansas City.
  • Routes O, 169 and CC – Extensive repair on three bridges in Buchanan County.
  • I-635 Bridges – Removed and replaced several bridges of the heavily trafficked highway.
