Traffic Impacts Week of May 23
Nighttime single lane closures of eastbound and westbound Interstate 70 expected Monday-Thursday due to construction of barrier curb.
Traffic switch to the new Garth Avenue bridge will take place Monday evening.
Work will require the westbound I-70 on ramp at Providence to be closed between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Monday evening.
Range Line Street
“Dogbone” interchange at Range Line and I-70 is scheduled to open at 6 a.m. Monday, May 23, weather permitting. The interchange, sometimes called a double roundabout interchange, will consist of two tear-shaped roundabouts that join together to form a single roundabout. Video animations showing both the old and new Range Line interchange can be found on the project website at www.modot.org/ColumbiaBridges.
Business Loop/Creasy Springs
- Overlaying the old roundabout will require flagging operations during daytime hours at the Business Loop location.
- Motorists traveling eastbound or westbound on Business Loop will not have access to Creasy Springs Road, but Creasy Springs drivers will be able to access Business Loop at the new roundabout.

Missouri River Bridge Traffic Switch Complete
Work to switch traffic from the westbound Route 54/63 bridge over the Missouri River in Jefferson City to the eastbound bridge so the westbound structure can be painted was completed May 1.
The eastbound bridge has been restriped to carry two lanes of eastbound and two lanes of westbound traffic. Speed limits on and near the bridge are reduced.
In addition to the bridge closure, the following access ramps are now 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.
The westbound bridge will be closed for painting and repairs for about four months.

Repairs in Store for Lamine River Bridges
Project Will Have Major Impact on I-70 Travel
Both the eastbound and westbound bridges that carry Interstate 70 over the Lamine River west of Boonville will be repaired this summer under a contract awarded yesterday by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission. The $3.8 million contract was awarded to APAC-Missouri of Columbia.
Work on the project will begin in early June and will eventually reduce I-70 traffic to one lane in each direction. However, the work requiring the full bridge closures and head-to-head traffic on I-70 will not start until after the Fourth of July and will be completed before Labor Day. The entire project is scheduled for completion in November. (MORE)
