DEFICIENT, CONGESTED ROADWAYS COST EACH JEFFERSON CITY AREA DRIVER MORE THAN $1,300 ANNUALLY, A TOTAL OF $4.5 BILLION STATEWIDE. COSTS WILL RISE AND TRANSPORTATION WOES WILL WORSEN WITHOUT INCREASED FUNDING 

Roads and bridges that are deficient, congested or lack desirable safety features cost Missouri motorists a total of $4.5 billion statewide annually – more than $1,300 per driver in the Jefferson City urban area - due to higher vehicle operating costs, traffic crashes and congestion-related delays.

Increased investment in transportation improvements at the local, state and federal levels could relieve traffic congestion, improve road and bridge conditions, boost safety, and support long-term economic growth in Missouri, according to a new report released today by TRIP, a Washington, DC based national transportation organization.

I70 Bridges Blackwater 42815I-70 Narrows to 12' for Blackwater Bridge Rehab

Project Runs April 20 - September 

A high-impact project will affect Interstate 70 traffic flow this summer. 

Rehabilitation of the Blackwater Bridges in Saline County near mile marker 77 began April 20. The work requires reduction to a single, 12-foot wide lane in each direction around the clock - for the duration of the project. Pavement work will also take place between the bridge site and the Cooper County line. 

Expect heavy congestion in the area. On high-travel days, backups could be measured in multiple miles.
