Route 179 to Close Aug. 29 for Interchange Construction in Jefferson City

JEFFERSON CITY - Starting Monday, Aug. 29, weather permitting, Route 179 between Route C and Edgewood Drive will close to all traffic as part of construction for the new diamond interchange project underway in Jefferson City.

Route 179 will remained closed at this location for approximately three months so that crews can remove the existing highway and excavate for Mission Drive. This is the new roadway that will pass underneath the highway and lead to a new St. Mary's Health Center development. During the closure, a new Route 179 bridge will be built over Mission Drive.

Motorists can detour around the work area by using U.S. 50, U.S. 54, and Route C. MoDOT appreciates the patience and cooperation of the motoring public during construction of the interchange project.

While Route 179 is scheduled to reopen sometime in November, the entire interchange project will take approximately a year to complete. Drivers are reminded to pay attention to work zone signing and drive safely through the area.

For more information about this project, log onto www.modot.org/central or call toll free 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).
