JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.Construction crews completed safety improvements to Wehmeyer Drive at Missouri Route 94 in Jefferson City and reopened the road today 

Wehmeyer Drive has been realigned with the entrance to Hitachi Energy and a left-turn lane added to westbound Route 94 to improve traffic safety and mitigate traffic back-ups during peak hours. Crews closed Wehmeyer Drive on Monday, May 20, around-the-clock to complete this work. The road reopened to all traffic today, Friday, May 24.
