Blasting will take place daily between noon and 2:30 p.m. for approximately three weeks. The roadway will close both the eastbound and westbound lanes for no more than 15 minutes at a time. The blasts themselves will only take a minute, leaving the remaining time for workers to clean debris from the highway prior to opening it back up to traffic. (MORE)

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.
