Missouri River BridgeMissouri River Bridge Work Continues

Work to paint the westbound bridge that carries Route 54/63 over the Missouri River in Jefferson City is progressing steadily.


The westbound bridge has been closed since May 1, and the eastbound bridge has been carrying two lanes of traffic in each direction since then. The bridge was scheduled to reopen in late August, but the opening has been delayed due to unforeseen structural repairs uncovered during the painting process.

While a reopening date has not been set, MoDOT hopes to get the bridge back open in early to mid November. After the bridge reopens, some additional work will continue that will require occasional lane closures. That work should be completed by spring of 2017.


In addition to the bridge closure, the following access ramps are closed:

All access ramps from Route 54/63 to and from 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.

Tools Available to Help Bridge Commuters
