Bridge Work to Close Business Loop 70 on Monday Evening

BOONE COUNTY -  Business Loop 70 under the Route B bridge and the ramp from Business Loop 70 to Route B will be closed from 7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 11 until 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 12 to place the girders for the new Route B bridge.

The following detours will be in place to guide motorists around the closure:

Business Loop 70 Detour - Eastbound

Right onto Route 763 (College Avenue); left onto Paris Road; right onto Ammonette; left onto Old Highway 63; right onto Business Loop 70.

Business Loop 70 Detour - Westbound

Business Loop 70 to left onto Old Highway 63; to right onto Ammonette; to left onto Paris Road to right onto Route 763 (College Avenue) to Business Loop 70.

Access to local businesses along Business Loop 70 and Route B will be available during the closure.

 The $881,239 bridge is being built by APAC-Missouri using an innovative technique called geosynthetic reinforced soil.  This bridge-building method is faster and less expensive than traditional methods because it eliminates the need for driving costly and time-consuming bridge piles.  Geosynthetic reinforced soil abutments use granular fill layered with synthetic materials to form the support for the bridge.

The bridge is currently closed and is scheduled to reopen on Sept. 15.

For more information about this project, including a camera focused on the bridge construction that takes a photo every 10 minutes and a time-lapse video that depicts everything from the old bridge's demolition  to construction on the new bridge to date, please visit the project's webpage at http://www.modot.org/central/major_projects/RouteBBridge.htm.
