JEFFERSON CITY –All construction work on state routes in Missouri will stop starting Friday, September 2 at noon for the Labor Day holiday weekend. Some work zones have permanent lane closures and barriers will remain in place this weekend. Some of the major permanent lane closure work zones include Interstate 70 at Fifth Street in St. Charles, Interstate 44 in the City of St. Louis and the Route 54/63 Missouri River bridge construction in Jefferson City. Work will resume Tuesday, September 6 at 9 a.m. For the locations of all state work zones, please check MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map.
Motorists should pay attention to all signing, follow the posted speed limits, and take turns merging every other car, like a zipper, where lanes are closed. Always wear safety belts and be alert for slowed traffic, narrowed lanes or a reduced number of lanes. Many of these work zones may cause congestion and traffic delays especially during the peak travel times including Friday evening and Monday afternoon.
