Weekly Project Updates
All work listed below is subject to change depending on weather conditions
of September 15th: Currently, large truck traffic is limited to right turns off of the northbound US 63 off ramp and onto the northbound US 63 on ramp. This restriction is due to limited turn radiuses available at the ends of the ramps. The detour that was set up while the ramps were closed remains in place for large trucks/trailers. This restriction will remain in place until the eastern roundabout is functionally complete. The contractor plans on having the eastern roundabout open to traffic on Friday September
Starting on Monday, September 15, the contractor will be planning on pouring the center island for the eastern roundabout. This work will be completed from the truck apron, and should have minimal impact on traffic. However, please be aware of concrete trucks entering and leaving the area. Additionally, the contractor will begin removing and replacing the sections of Route Y & Route M that lead to the roundabouts/bridge. This work will require alternating one way traffic through the area.
Also starting next week, shoulder sealing will begin on the mainline of US 63. This work will be a daytime moving operation that will not require lane closures but may involve slower moving equipment in traffic.
Lastly, the contractor will continue paving the area around the US 63/54 Interchange. Paving work will require various nighttime lane closures in the area around the interchange. Once the interchange is completed, they plan on moving north paving crossover intersections. Crossover paving work will require short distance passing (left) lane closures at the crossovers.

U.S. 63 and Route H Interchange
The Missouri Department of Transportation proposes to construct a diamond interchange at U.S. 63 and Route H near the Columbia Regional Airport in Boone County. The project also includes constructing new southbound lanes from just north of Route 163 to Route H in Columbia. An outer roadway would be created using the current southbound lanes. This would allow for the removal of several crossovers to improve safety.
