The project will last several weeks, including a 15-day period in which Dix Road will be completely closed to traffic.
Drainage Pipe Replacements Planned for Route 54 and I-70
Median drainage pipe replacement work will begin Monday, Sept. 9 on two major routes in Callaway County.
MoDOT will have crews replacing drainage pipes on U.S. Route 54, north of Kingdom City, from the Auxvasse Creek bridge to the I-70 interchange during the hours of 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. starting Monday. There will be occasional lane closures on the westbound Route 54 passing lanes.
Once the Route 54 pipes have been replaced, crews will begin replacing drain pipes on I-70. This work will have lane closures on the I-70 eastbound and westbound passing lanes from mile marker 152 to mile marker 160. The passing lane closures will occur between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m.
The work is expected to be completed this fall. Motorists will need to use caution in work zones.
Two Route 63 Bridge Rehabilitations
As part of a larger Route 63 bridge improvement project in Callaway and Boone Counties, two more bridges will be undergoing rehabilitation on Monday, Sept. 9.
Work will begin in the northbound lanes of the Katy Trail bridge and the Gans Creek bridge, between Jefferson City and Columbia, on Monday morning. MoDOT will be closing one lane of each bridge to allow crews to make deck improvements. Motorists will need to slow down, use caution and pay attention in work zones.
Construction on both bridges is scheduled to be complete by November, weather permitting.
Two bridges have already been improved as part of this project, according to MoDOT. The Route AC/Grindstone Avenue bridge over Route 63 was completed in July. The Bonne Femme northbound bridge was completed in August.
