COLUMBIA, Mo. – Work continues to progress on the project to replace the Interstate 70 bridges at Rangeline Street, Business Loop 70 and Garth Avenue. Here is a look at upcoming traffic impacts due to the construction:
Expected traffic impacts Nov. 1-7
The left westbound I-70 driving lane from just east of Rangeline to Providence will be closed from 5 p.m. until 5 a.m. on Nov. 1 and from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., Nov. 2-4. Motorists will enter the lane closure traveling in the right lane and once through the work zone near Rangeline will be moved to the left lane when traveling through the work zone near Garth Avenue.
This closure will allow the contractor to pave the new auxiliary lane for the westbound I-70 on-ramp at Providence.
The westbound lanes of I-70 from Providence to east of the I-70 off-ramp at Business Loop will be restriped to 11 feet wide on Nov. 1 and will remain in place until Nov. 9, at which time the lanes will be restriped to 12 feet wide.
The speed limit in the work zone will be reduced from 60 mph to 50 mph.
Garth Avenue is scheduled to be closed at night on Thursday, November 5 for bridge work.
Expected traffic impacts Nov. 8-13
The right westbound I-70 driving lane from east of Rangeline to east of Providence will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., Nov. 8-13.
The closure will allow the contractor to grade & pave the westbound I-70 bypass at Rangeline.
