City Receives Grant for N. Main Bridge and Dry Fork Terracing Project

Excelsior Springs has received a grant of $3,891,114 from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MoDNR), funded by ARPA, for the reconstruction of the N. Main Bridge, terracing along the Dry Fork River, and for rehabilitation of the “old laundry parking lot”. The city plans to match the grant with a Capital Improvement Program allocation of $973,386.

A preliminary engineering report, which includes cost analysis and options for the project, has been conducted and was used in the grant application. The city is now in the process of soliciting engineering firms to design the improvement and completing the necessary certifications to receive the grant.

Once an engineer is hired, the city will engage with the community to determine the final improvements to be made. The city will then select from the alternatives available to ensure the best outcome for the community. Meetings will be announced on the city’s website and here on

This project is another significant investment in the community, and the city is committed to ensuring that the improvements are made to the highest standards. The city is excited about the opportunities this project presents and is looking forward to working with citizens to make the project a success and to continue improving the community.
