Lane Closures Scheduled on I-70 for Route B Bridge Work in Cooper County

COOPER COUNTY - Construction on the new Route B bridge over Interstate 70 in Cooper County has been underway since mid-September. As crews prepare to set the new beams for the bridge, motorists on I-70 should expect delays and seek alternate routes during lane closures planned for Saturday, Nov. 6, weather permitting.

The contractor will work on one side of the interstate at a time, beginning at 6 a.m. in the westbound lanes. Both westbound lanes will be closed at the bridge, and interstate traffic will be merged into one lane before reaching the Route B interchange and then routed around the work using the interstate exit and entrance ramps.

Once work on the westbound side is complete, crews will close the eastbound lanes at the bridge and eastbound motorists will be routed around the area using the eastbound ramps. The work is scheduled to be finished by 6 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 7.

The westbound rest area at Boonville will also close at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 5, and remain closed until work on the westbound side of the interstate is complete.

The contractor will have various types of traffic control in place to secure the safety of the motoring public as well as their employees. MoDOT encourages motorists to buckle up, slow down, follow work zone signing and drive safely through the area.

The Route B bridge replacement is part of MoDOT's Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program, which will improve 800 of Missouri's worst bridges in five years - by the end of 2013. Ninety bridges will be replaced or repaired in mid-Missouri as part of this program. So far, more than 276 bridges have been improved across the state.
