Commercial Vehicles Encouraged to Use US 61/54 at Bowling Green Instead of US 61/19 at New London

HANNIBAL - The East Lick Creek Bridge on MO 19 between Perry and Laddonia has been closed for replacement since April 25. When the road closed, MoDOT set up a detour to Routes 154, P, PP and 54. However, now that this detour is in place, MoDOT crews have been continuously battling pavement repairs on these smaller roads. "We are encouraging commercial vehicles normally traveling Route 19 to the Mexico area or central Missouri to consider using US 61 to US 54 at Bowling Green, then proceed west to Route 19 as an alternate route," said MoDOT Traffic Engineer Brian Untiedt. "This detour provides a much safer route of travel for commercial vehicles and has comparable driving time to using the detour on Route 19," he added.

Routes 154, P, PP and 54 will continue to be suitable as an alternate route for smaller, local traffic on the east side of Route 19; Routes D, B and J, west of Route 19, are also suitable detour routes for local traffic.

All roadwork is posted on the traveler information map. Those traveling and the commuting public are encouraged to check the online map at www.modot.org daily for new work zones. Drivers are also invited to rate MoDOT work zones online at modot.org. 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.
