COLUMBIA - MoDOT will continue construction for its diverging diamond interchange project starting early Monday morning.
A 150-foot stretch of East Bernadette Drive near the Conoco gas station in Columbia will be closed Monday. That's so construction crews can lay down new pavement as part of the roadway improvement project that started earlier this year.
The paving project starts Monday morning right after midnight and lasts through 6:00 a.m. Thursday. During that time, drivers are advised to take it slow, especially near the corner of Stadium and Bernadette. Delays have already been a problem in the area with current construction, and it's expected to continue with this part of the project.
MoDOT is telling drivers to keep a close eye out for trucks moving in and out of the construction zone over the next few days. The entire interchange project is expected to last through winter 2014. More information about MoDOT's diverging diamond interchange plans can be found here.
