Work Begins Again On New Interchange in Moscow Mills

HANNIBAL - Coming out of the winter shutdown, work is starting back up on the US 61/Route U interchange being constructed in Moscow Mills.  MoDOT and its contractor are planning to close one lane of traffic to begin work for the exit and entrance ramps on the southbound lanes of US 61.  Beginning Friday, March 19 around 9 a.m., the right southbound lane only will be closed intermittently, potentially through Sunday, March 21.  All lanes will be open Monday, March 22, prior to 5 a.m.

"The weekend work will include removing material, grading and paving with concrete, so traffic needs to be aware that there will be construction equipment moving in and out of the closed lane quite often during this closure," explained MoDOT Senior Construction Inspector Henry Burkemper.

Burkemper went on to explain that this is a change from the original traffic control plan.  "The contractor suggested closing the lanes instead of reducing the lane width and putting up barrier wall, and we feel this is a safety improvement, both for the workers and the traveling public," he continued.

Work is weather permitting, and if it is not favorable, the work will be moved to the following weekend, March 26-28.

All roadwork is posted online at modot.org on MoDOT's traveler information map on the day it begins.  Those traveling and commuting public are encouraged to check the online map at www.modot.org daily for new work zones.  MoDOT also offers e-update messages sent directly to your email when roadwork is scheduled.  Sign up online or call MoDOT's customer service center at 1-888-275-6636.
