Rehabilitation Begins for Westbound Interstate 70 Bridge in Callaway County

CALLAWAY COUNTY - Rehabilitation of the westbound Interstate 70 bridge over Auxvasse Creek, located east of Kingdom City, will begin on Monday, September 20, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).

Contractors working for MoDOT will replace the guardrail and expansion joints, rehabilitate the bearings, and repair the structural steel girder end. Rehabilitation is necessary to extend the life and usability of the bridge.

Much of the work will take place on the underneath structure of the bridge. There will be initial nightly lane closures on the bridge, with a planned long-term closure scheduled in October.

Message boards will be in place in advance to warn motorists of lane closures. MoDOT appreciates the patience of travelers while the work takes place.

This bridge is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state. This project is scheduled to be complete by December.
