Lanes Closing on Interstate 70
COOPER COUNTY - Prepare for traffic delays on I-70 Saturday near the Route B bridge construction. Traffic was moving along Friday night, but that will change. Westbound lanes will close first as crews prepare to set the new bridge beams. After work on that side is finished, MoDOT will close the eastbound lanes. The lane closures are scheduled to start at 6:00 a.m., weather permitting.
Construction for the new bridge began in mid-September as part of MoDOT's Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program. The program plans to improve 800 of Missouri's worst bridges by the end of 2013.
