Springfield and Ozark drivers will experience slowdowns and possible short-term traffic stops on Route 65 on Monday night, Feb. 8.
Law enforcement officers, working with contractor crews and MoDOT, will slow Route 65 traffic between Christian County Route EE south of Ozark and Chestnut Expressway in Springfield to 20 mph. Drivers entering Route 65 from interchange ramps may be stopped for short periods. The operation will take place between 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 8, with all traffic restored to normal by 6 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9.
The traffic slowdown operation will allow contractor crews to place girders for the new Route CC/J bridge over Route 65 in Ozark.
