Roadway Improvements to Begin on I-70 in Montgomery County

Nighttime Lane Closures Scheduled

HANNIBAL – The Missouri Department of Transportation and its contractor, Magruder Paving LLC., will soon begin work on a resurfacing project spanning across 32 miles of Interstate 70 in Montgomery County from the Callaway County line to just east of Route F, near High Hill.

Preliminary guardrail work will begin mid-February which will require nighttime lane closures from mile marker 165-181.  Drivers can expect lane reductions up to one mile in length while guardrail work continues through mid-April. 

“Paving operations are expected to begin in March, as weather and temperatures allow.  Work will continue through June and drivers can expect ramp closures as work progresses.” explained Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Jeff Niemeyer.  “All guardrail and paving work will be completed during nighttime hours between 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.,” he added.

All work is weather dependent and schedule changes could occur.  The public will be notified of traffic impacts, including ramp closures, through signs, message boards, news releases and social media as scheduling is planned.

We ask that motorists please be attentive in work zones for their safety and the safety of highway workers.
