Night Construction Reduces Daytime Traffic
Some of the Boone County hot spots include I-70 Eastbound, Providence and Range Line from the Business Loop to north of I-70.
In Cole County, construction crews are working on parts of Highway 54, around the Moreau and Missouri River Bridges. But you won't see a lot of work done during daylight hours; most of the projects are taking place after dark. Many drivers say that makes commuting with construction more tolerable.
"Of course it causes a traffic jam but its less of a jam then it would be in the daytime, and the lighter traffic is the reason behind it," said commuter, John Dye, Jr.
MODOT says this year will be one of its busiest construction seasons yet.
