Lane closure scheduled for Chipman Road between Murray Road and Blue Parkway on Sept. 27

JACKSON COUNTY – Crews will close the right lane of both eastbound and westbound Chipman Road between Murray Road and Blue Parkway beginning at 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 27 for landscaping work in the area. Motorists are advised to plan ahead or seek an alternate route if necessary.

Crews recently completed the bridge replacement at U.S. 50 over Chipman Road. This portion of Chipman Road had been closed for several months as part of the replacement of the U.S. Route 50 bridges. Originally anticipated to be completed by February 2023, crews have completed the project nearly five months ahead of schedule. The former structures were built in 1975 and pre-dated many of the residents and businesses that rely on it. In addition to the new bridges, this project also made ADA improvements including the addition of sidewalks along both sides of Chipman Road.

This project is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges Program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state. For full details, visit our project webpage.
