Westbound Route 50 at 63 Interchange to be Reconfigured in Osage County

OSAGE COUNTY – Beginning Nov. 14, motorists traveling on westbound U.S. Route 50 will notice work to improve the configuration of the westbound lanes of Route 50 at the 63 interchange near the Osage River in Osage County.

Workers will stripe a dedicated right lane for the Route 50/63 westbound/northbound exit to Jefferson City and a dedicated left lane for the Route 63 southbound exit to Rolla. Overhead directional signs noting the dedicated exits will also be installed. Currently, both westbound lanes continue to allow passing up to the site of the two exits.

“The changes will improve driver safety at the interchange by making the exits to Rolla and Jefferson City easier to navigate,” said Senior Traffic Studies Specialist Garrett Depue. “The new configuration should also help prevent last-second lane changes by motorists at the interchange by having a dedicated lane for each exit.”

The work will close one lane of westbound Route 50 between the Route A intersection and the Osage River from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day from Monday, Nov. 14 through Thursday, Nov. 17. One lane of westbound Route 50 will be open through the work zone at all times.

Diagrams showing the new configuration can be found at modot.org/central. For more information, call toll free 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636). To follow MoDOT Central District on social media, visit Facebook.com/MoDOTCentralMissouri District on Facebook or @MoDOT_Central on Twitter.
