Route Z Bridge Expected to Open Friday
Westbound Ramps Leading from I-70 to Route Z Open

BOONE COUNTY - The new Route Z overpass is expected to open to traffic at 4 p.m. tomorrow (Friday, July 19) and the westbound ramps leading from Interstate 70 to the Route Z interchange are already open, bringing the Boone County safety-enhancement project two steps closer to completion.

With multiple projects going on in the vicinity of the new Battle High School, the Missouri Department of Transportation has worked with the contractor to complete each component of this project as quickly as possible to provide alternate routes to navigate through the area.

"We are very pleased with the progress that Don Schnieders Excavating Company has made on this project," said MoDOT Resident Engineer Charles Sullivan. "We understand this project has caused some inconvenience for the traveling public, and we want to thank everyone for their patience during construction."

The eastbound ramps leading from I-70 to the Route Z interchange were opened to traffic June 7, almost two months ahead of the scheduled completion date. With both eastbound and westbound ramps open on the interchange, direct access to Route Z and Rangeline Road has been restored, reducing travel times for motorists.

The new interchange is one element of a larger project to improve Route Z in Boone County.  The project also consists of resurfacing Route Z from I-70 to St. Charles Road, adding shoulders and building a roundabout at the intersection of Route Z and St. Charles Road. St. Charles Road at Route Z remains closed for construction of the roundabout.

This project, which is funded through a cost-share agreement between MoDOT and Boone County, is designed to improve safety and accommodate a projected traffic increase associated with the new Battle High School.

More information about this project can be found at www.modot.org/central or by calling 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).
