Excavation Begins near Katy Trail as Part of I-70 Rocheport Bridge Replacement Project

COLUMBIA, MO –Starting Monday, April 25, contractors for the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will be excavating rock from the East Abutment, adjacent to the Katy Trail to allow drilling for further structure excavation.

Due to the work being completed, the Katy Trail will be closed for operation starting April 25 and will resume normal operation April 28. This work will not require any lane closures or traffic delays on I-70 at the work zone. The information will also be provided on the MoDOT Traveler Information Map and MoDOT Central District social media pages. This project is expected to be completed by December 31, 2024.

Motorists are advised to use extra caution through work zones, obey all traffic signs, and avoid any distractions.

This work is weather permitting and could be delayed.
