MoDOT Bridge Project on I-70 at Route 65 Could Impact Traffic for Approximately Two Weeks

MARSHALL – Beginning May 7, the Missouri Department of Transportation will begin initial roadwork for the I-70 and Route 65 bridge rehabilitation project. Crews will have daily lane closures for approximately two weeks, reducing I-70 to ONE lane in both directions to build cross over lanes for upcoming bridge work, as well as shoulder and median cable work. Crews will then shift traffic to the outside lanes to build crossovers for upcoming bridge work. Speeds through the work zone will be reduced to 60 miles per hours.

Possible delays may occur during this first phase of the project. Check on traffic impacts with MoDOT's Traveler Information Map. Use cameras at mile marker 78.1 and 81.5.

This work will repair the bridges on I-70 that span the Route 65 interchange outside of Marshall because the bridge decks are becoming substandard. This will increase the life span of these twin bridges. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/2F4Vc50

The Missouri Department of Transportation urges all motorists to always wear safety belts, follow posted speed limits and be alert for slowed traffic, narrowed lanes or a reduced number of lanes during construction and maintenance work. And remember, every work zone is a NO PHONE ZONE.
