Lafayette Project Changes U.S. Route 50/63

Work on the new Lafayette Interchange project in Jefferson City has brought changes for motorists traveling both directions on U.S. Route 50/63 in Jefferson City.

Both westbound lanes of Route 50/63 will be diverted down the new Lafayette off ramp. Traffic will continue across Lafayette Street, travel up the new on ramp and back onto westbound 50/63. Motorists currently have access to Lafayette Street at this location, but on Aug. 27 access to Lafayette will be closed. This configuration is anticipated to remain in place until June of 2016. This will allow workers to safely continue construction of the new interchange. Also, the eastbound lanes of 50/63 will be reduced to eleven feet through the work area near Lafayette Street. This alignment will remain in place until the end of this year.

HelpWantedMoDOT Hiring Workers for Winter Operations

The Missouri Department of Transportation’s Central District has begun preparations to make sure it has the right number of people in the right places, ready to plow and treat mid-Missouri's roadways this winter.

An estimated 400 district maintenance employees will be ready to plow if a regional or statewide storm hits, but MoDOT must also rely on extra help. Each year the department recruits seasonal workers to fill the gaps and get the job done.
