Welcome to the Southwest District


Expect Delays on I-44 at the Spring River West of Mt. Vernon;

Reduced to One Lane/Two-Way Traffic for Bridge Rehabilitation


I-44 Bridge at Spring River

The eastbound I-44 bridge over the Spring River is CLOSED (Mile Marker 43.4) with traffic shifted to the westbound bridge and reduced to one lane in both directions so contractor crews can work to rehabilitate the eastbound bridge.

Expect delays on I-44. Drivers are urged to use alternate routes. Westbound drivers can use a signed detour along Missouri Route 96 between Route 39 and Route 97. Eastbound drivers can us the outer road beginning at Exit 38. When backups are occurring on I-44, traffic may be diverted to the detour routes.

Work on the bridge is expected to be complete by late August 2017.

To learn more about this project, check out the Eastbound I-44 Bridge Rehabilitation website.
