*Detour information: Traffic on NB I-49 should follow the signed detour and take NB I-49 to Commercial Street, exit and cross the bridge and take SB I-49 back to MO-7.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
