Route F Bridge Repair to Reduce I-44 WB Traffic to One Lane
Contractor to Use Heat Straightening to Make Repairs
Contractors will use a method called heat straightening to repair girders on the Route F bridge over Interstate 44 in Sleeper starting Monday, April 24th. Traffic will be reduced on westbound I-44 to one 12-foot lane from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily during the work, which will run through May 1.
The girder was damaged last fall when a raised boom on a piece of equipment struck the bridge.
The heat straightening method involves applying extreme heat to the bent or damaged steel so that workers can make repairs in place. The method is used as a safe and cost-effective alternative to a total replacement of steel. (MORE)

Heads Up: Southbound Route 63 Closure Coming
This Summer in Jefferson City
The Missouri Department of Transportation wants motorists traveling Route 63 between Columbia and Jefferson City to be aware that their travel will be impacted this summer when the southbound Route 63 bridge over the Katy Trail gets a new deck.
The project, which will bid in April, will require both lanes of southbound Route 63 over the Katy Trail to be closed. Southbound traffic will be diverted to northbound Route 63, which will carry one lane of traffic in each direction.
“This stretch of Route 63 carries a lot of commuters between Columbia and Jefferson City,” said MoDOT Project Manager Mike Dusenberg. “The closure will likely cause delays during peak travel times, such as morning and evening rush periods and Friday and Sunday afternoons.”
The full closure of southbound Route 63 will not occur until after Memorial Day weekend, Dusenberg said. The project is scheduled to wrap up in the fall. (MORE)
