U.S. 54/U.S. 63 Missouri River Bridge To Return to Regular Traffic Pattern

JEFFERSON CITY - If weather permits, the Missouri Department of Transportation will remove the work zone on the U.S. 54 eastbound/U.S. 63 northbound Missouri River Bridge in Jefferson City during the evening and overnight hours of Friday, April 1, 2011.

The construction of a new bicycle/pedestrian bridge attachment on the bridge has required narrowed lanes and speed limit reductions for almost a year.  Work on the attachment is nearing completion and the contractor is ready to remove the work zone barriers and place new striping throughout the area.

The work is scheduled to take place between 7 p.m. on Friday, April 1 and 6 a.m. on Saturday, April 2.  The McCarty Street ramp onto U.S. 54 eastbound/U.S 63 northbound will be closed during this time. Periodic lane closures on the bridge will occur, but at least one lane will remain open at all times.

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.         

When the contractor is finished on Saturday morning, the McCarty Street ramp will open to traffic.  The Main Street ramp and new bicycle/pedestrian bridge attachment will remain closed while crews finish work on the structure.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the bridge attachment is scheduled for Friday, April 8 at 10:30 a.m. The event is open to the public and will be held rain or shine at the Missouri Department of Conservation's Carl R. Noren fishing access area on the north side of the river.  Following the ceremony, the bridge attachment will be open to the public.
