Truman Boulevard bridge over U.S. Route 50 to close for 10 days

Construction crews to block all traffic on Oct. 9

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo – Truman Boulevard over U.S. Route 50 in Jefferson City will close for up to 10 days in October for bridge rehabilitation work. Construction crews anticipate restricting all access to the overpass bridge beginning at 1 a.m. on Oct. 9, 2023.

MoDOT contracted with E & C Bridge, LLC for the rehabilitation project. Work on the Truman Boulevard overpass bridge will include replacing the expansion joints, repairing the concrete, and applying a protective coating.

Beginning at 1 a.m. on Oct. 9, 2023, the Truman Boulevard bridge will be closed for up to 10 calendar days for the safety of the traveling public and the workers on the road. All ramps will be open with a signed detour in place. Message boards are in place, giving motorists advanced warning of the closure.

The construction crew may begin some work in late September, prior to the 10-day closure, but that should have no impact to traffic. All repairs on the Truman Boulevard overpass should be completed by the end of November. All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.

The project also includes rehabilitation work to the Cole County Route D bridge over U.S. Route 50. This bridge will be closed for three days at a to-be-determined date with a signed detour in place.
