Upcoming Road Work for Mid-Missouri

Jefferson City’s Department of Public Works, in conjunction with their contractor, Concrete Engineering, are installing new curb/gutter and sidewalks in the 500/600 blocks of Broadway Street.

Weather and construction progress permitting, this work should be completed by June 1.

Cole County

• U.S. 54 between Old Bass Road and Route CC — Improvements at 12 intersections along 8.5 miles of U.S. 54 to improve safety and traffic flow.

  • Crews are working off the roadway at Buffalo Road and installing lighting in various locations. Work to install lighting will take place on the shoulder of the roadway. The entire corridor is scheduled for completion in the fall.

Boone County

• U.S. 63 from just north of Missouri 163 to Route H — Construction of a new diamond interchange and southbound lanes. Motorists should expect periodic lane closures.

  • The Route AB crossover north of the overpass construction is closed to allow the contractor to construct the two new southbound lanes of 63. Motorists will need to use the next available crossover or overpass to the north and south to access the northbound lanes of 63. During this construction period, the speed limits for both the northbound and southbound lanes of 63 will be reduced to 60 mph during working hours.

  • Route H is temporarily closed at 63. Traffic is being detoured to Hardwick Lane, located near the U.S. 63 roadside park. Route H will remain closed at 63 until the new interchange opens to traffic.

The entire project is scheduled for completion late this year.
