Take It Slow Tonight – More Ice Headed Our Way

More freezing rain could hit mid-Missouri starting this evening (Feb. 20) and lasting through early morning and once again MoDOT officials are asking drivers to take it slow and drive with caution.

“Many times when we see crashes associated with winter weather, it’s because folks were driving too fast for the conditions at hand,” said MoDOT Central District Maintenance Engineer Jason Shafer. “We can’t stress enough how important it is to slow down and allow extra time if you have to travel. Ice is especially tricky and can cause hazardous conditions, so please use extra caution if you go out tonight.”

Shafer reminded drivers to be sure to check the department’s Traveler Information Map at www.modot.org if they must travel. (MORE)



Head-to-Head Traffic on Route 54 in Fulton 54

Here is a look at traffic impacts currently in place near the U.S. Route 54 bridges over Ozark Valley Railroad, Richland Creek and Business Route 54:

  • The westbound Route 54 off-ramp to Business Route 54 in Fulton is closed.
  • The Business Route 54 on-ramp to eastbound Route 54 in Fulton is closed.
  • Eastbound and westbound Route 54 traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction through the work zone area. Route 54 traffic will be head to head in the westbound lanes and separated by concrete barriers.
  • Eastbound Route 54 traffic has been switched to the passing lane of westbound Route 54 via temporary median crossovers, and westbound Route 54 traffic uses the driving lane of westbound Route 54.
  • Route 54 median crossovers at Callaway County Roads 114, 201 and 210 are closed.

These traffic impacts will be in place until late May of 2018.

Gasconade River Bridge

Plans for a new Interstate 44 outer road bridgeover the Gasconade River west of Hazelgreen in Laclede County are underway.

The project includes building a new bridge on a new alignment adjacent to the existing Gasconade River Bridge, located on historic Route 66. That bridge was closed to traffic in December 2014 due to extensive deterioration.
