MO River BridgeWestbound Missouri River Bridge at Jefferson City
to Close Early to Mid-April


The Missouri Department of Transportation is reminding motorists that the westbound bridge carrying Routes 54/63 over the Missouri River in Jefferson City will be closed for painting and deck repairs for about four months beginning in early to mid-April.

The eastbound bridge will remain open and will be striped to carry two lanes of eastbound and two lanes of westbound traffic.

In addition to the bridge closure, all access ramps from Route 54/63 to West Main Street, the eastbound on-ramp from McCarty St. to Route 54/63, and the westbound on-ramp from Route W to Route 54/63 will be closed. Speed limits will also be reduced on and near the bridge. (MORE)

Eastbound Route 50 Off-Ramp to Clark Avenue to Close for Four Days


The eastbound Route 50 off-ramp to Clark Avenue in Jefferson City will close at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 8 so workers can finish building a sound wall there. The ramp will remain closed through 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 11.

The off-ramp was originally scheduled to close from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily until Feb. 12 to complete the sound wall work. Closing the ramp entirely will allow the contractor to finish this portion of the project in a shorter amount of time. (MORE)

Rangeline Reduced to One Lane in Each Direction Starting Monday

Construction of the new eastbound Interstate 70 bridge at Rangeline Street will reduce Rangeline to one lane in each direction for 30 days starting Monday.

The left southbound lane will be closed from south of Vandiver Drive to south of the eastbound I-70 off-ramp. The right northbound lane will be closed from south of the eastbound I-70 on-ramp to the westbound I-70 off-ramp. 

As a result, there will be no access to northbound Rangeline from eastbound I-70.  All other ramp movements will remain open. (MORE)

I-70 Reminder

Local motorists should avoid I-70 through Columbia as much as possible until this project is finished next fall. Local residents who are used to traveling I-70 as an east-west city street are asked to use other options to prevent cross-state traffic from becoming snarled. The less traffic in the area, the faster and safer the work can be completed.
