54Head-to-Head Traffic on Route 54 in North Fulton
Tentatively Rescheduled to Jan. 31

Winter weather in January has resulted in schedule changes to the project that is improving three eastbound U.S. Route 54 bridges on the north side of Fulton: the Route 54 bridge over Ozark Valley Railroad, the Route 54 bridge over Richland Creek and the Route 54 bridge over Business Route 54.

The new tentative schedule for traffic impacts is:

Thursday, Jan. 25

  • The westbound Route 54 off-ramp to Business Route 54 in Fulton will be closed.

 Wednesday, Jan. 31

  • Eastbound and westbound Route 54 traffic will be 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 will be switched to the passing lane of westbound Route 54 via temporary median crossovers, and westbound Route 54 traffic will use the driving lane of westbound Route 54.
  • The Business Route 54 on-ramp to eastbound Route 54 in Fulton will also be closed. (MORE)
