Visitor (not verified)
Fri, 04/16/2021 – 15:35

JACKSON/CLAY COUNTIES – The Missouri Department of Transportation will make the following traffic changes as part of a two-year bridge rehabilitation project on the I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River.
Crews will close two left lanes of southbound I-435 at Route 210 from 11:30 p.m. Friday, April 16 until 5:00 p.m. Saturday, April17 for bridge work
Crews will close the ramp from Route 210 to southbound I-435 from 11:30 p.m. Friday, April 16 until 5:00 p.m. Saturday, April 17 for bridge work
 
Closures in this area have the potential for creating significant traffic slowdowns. We encourage motorists to please plan ahead.
 
This is all part of a project to replace the bridge deck, reinforce the structural steel and repair the substructure of the aging bridge. The I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River, located just south of Worlds of Fun was built in 1972 and is showing signs of aging and wear. The structure sees about 81,500 vehicles each day. This rehab project is slated to be complete by December 2021.     
Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.

View Alternative and Comment Online

What: The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), has been following National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) guidelines to identify a Preferred Alternative to improve the current Chester Bridge Mississippi River crossing connecting Missouri Route 51 and Illinois Route 150 at Chester, Illinois. The Chester Bridge Study’s Environmental Assessment (EA) was recently approved for public distribution by MoDOT and FHWA following a multi-year study of the existing crossing and alternatives for maintaining, rehabilitating, or replacing the crossing. This included study of flooding-related impacts at the river crossing, the cost to improve the bridge’s condition, ways to widen the bridge, and how to maintain transportation connectivity within the region. MoDOT will host study information and virtual public exhibits for the Preferred Alternative online at www.chesterbridgestudy.com with a 30-day public comment period. Additional options are available for providing comments on the Preferred Alternative and EA as described below.
Why: The Chester Bridge Study is being conducted to evaluate options to develop a safe and reliable Mississippi River crossing. The project team analyzed features to widen lanes, add shoulders, include bike/ped access, improve safety, and increase transportation accessibility. The project team studied maintenance, rehabilitation, and design alternatives and narrowed them down to one Preferred Alternative – the Near Upstream Alternative (U-1). Funding for design and construction of the Preferred Alternative has not yet been identified or programmed.
Who: MoDOT has been working with FHWA and IDOT to study and plan for the improvement of the Chester Bridge crossing connecting Missouri Route 51 and Illinois Route 150 at Chester, Illinois.
When: Currently available. Comment period concludes May 17, 2021.
Where: To view the Preferred Alternative and the entire EA report, visit www.chesterbridgestudy.com. A hardcopy version is available by appointment at the Chester Library in Chester, Illinois (733 State Street, Chester, IL 62233). Visitors are welcome inside the library by appointment only Monday through Thursday 10 a.m.– 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. To schedule an appointment, call the library at (618) 826-3711. Computer access to view the study website and EA is also available by appointment at the library.
How: Comments may be submitted online at www.chesterbridgestudy.com. Participants may also contact MoDOT District Construction and Materials Engineer Jason Williams at (573) 472-5290 or MoDOT Area Engineer Brian Okenfuss at (573) 258-9144 to discuss the information in more detail or share their thoughts.
Written comments may be mailed to:

Seal coating project scheduled for Route 190 in Livingston County
Visitor (not verified)
Fri, 04/16/2021 – 13:45

St. Joseph, Mo. – Crews from Vance Brothers, Inc., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, plan to seal coat Route 190 between U.S. Route 65 in Chillicothe and 8 miles west of U.S. Route 65, just west of Route N. The work is scheduled for Thursday, April 22, Friday, April 23 and Monday, April 26.
During the seal coat operation, the roadway will be reduced to one lane with flaggers and a pilot car directing motorist through the work zone. Drivers will experience delays, both directions, as they must wait for a pilot car. Drivers entering from a side road onto the route being sealed must also wait for a pilot car. An 11-foot width restriction will be in place.
A seal coat is a preventative maintenance treatment which rejuvenates the road surface and helps extend the life of the roadway by filling and sealing cracks in the existing asphalt with an emulsified asphalt/aggregate seal. MoDOT does its best to be good stewards of the monies provided by taxpayers. One of the ways is to employ many preventative maintenance methods, such as this.
All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change. Please remember that all work zones are NO PHONE zones. Buckle up. Phone down. Show-Me Zero. Motorist are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones.
For more information about this and other MoDOT projects, visit modot.org and view the online Traveler Information Map. Also at modot.org, sign up online for work zone updates. Information is also available 24/7 at 888-ASK-MODOT (275-6636) or via social media.

JACKSON COUNTY – MoDOT Kansas City will be replacing the 67th St. bridge over Interstate 435. Crews will close the bridge at 7 a.m. on Friday, April 23 until approximately Dec. 2021. There will be no signed detour for 67th St. and traffic will need to find alternate routes. This bridge replacement will require the TOTAL CLOSURE of I-435 between MO Route 350 and U.S. 71 beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday evening, April 23, until 5 a.m. Monday morning, April 26 for demolition purposes. Northbound and southbound I-435 motorists are encouraged to use I-70 and I-470 around the closure during this time. U.S. 71 is also recommended as an alternate route. All work is weather permitting.

Current Intersection Will Close to Connecting Traffic

LAKE OZARK – A major milestone on a two-year project will occur next week. The opening of the Lake of the Ozarks new interchange will take place in time for the annual increase in traffic headed to the area.As part of the Missouri Department of Transportation’s ongoing effort to bring improvements and increase the safety for the traveling public, contractors are scheduled to remove traffic signals at the intersection of U.S. Route 54, Business Route 54, Miller County Route W, and Osage Hills Road. The removal of those signals will coincide with the opening of the new multi-million-dollar interchange that will tie in those roads with Route 54 in a more efficient manner.“This is a tremendous next step in the process of constructing the new interchange”, said Central Area Engineer Robert Lynch. “When the signals at the intersection are removed and the new interchange is opened, traffic will be able to flow more freely and safely through that area. We’re excited to reach this landmark moment in the project.”Lynch advises that once the signals are removed, traffic from Route W, Osage Hills Road and Business Route 54 will no longer be able to access Route 54 at the existing signal location and will be required to use the new interchange.The deactivation and removal of the signals is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, April 21. The removal of the signal and existing pavement will require eastbound and westbound lane closures on Route 54 through Friday, April 23. Motorists are advised to proceed through the area with caution.Construction on the new interchange began in February of 2020. The new interchange is designed to increase traffic safety and improve traffic flow in an area where numerous traffic accidents have occurred. In addition to the new interchange, the project involves building several new connecting roads and three roundabouts in the same area.This work is weather permitting and could be delayed. For more information and updates about this project or other transportation-related matters, please call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636) or visit www.modot.org/Miller54Interchange.

Resurfacing and Sidewalk Project Scheduled for Route B in Lewis County Set to Begin

Thu, 04/15/2021 – 13:15

HANNIBAL –  Weather permitting, Monday, April 19, the Missouri Department of Transportation and its contractor will begin work on an improvement project located on Route B in Lewis County.  The project includes 12.3 miles of resurfacing from U.S. Route 61 at Canton to U.S. Route 61 at LaGrange, as well as bringing sections of the area in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The initial phase will include all ADA work and is expected to last through mid-June. “We will replace sidewalks on the north end of Canton, and improve cross walks at several intersections in Canton and two corners in La Grange, as well as adding wheelchair ramps,” said MoDOT Resident Engineer Martin Lincoln, Jr.  There will be minimal impacts to drivers during the ADA work.
Resurfacing is expected to begin mid-June and includes a one-inch overlay on Route B, outside the city limits of Canton and LaGrange.  “First the old surface will be removed with a process called milling, and as we remove that surface, a new surface will be immediately laid,” explained Crawford. A mill and fill operation will occur within the city limits of the two municipalities with no milled areas to remain open overnight.  “During this time, traffic will be reduced to one lane where crews are active, and we appreciate all drivers paying attention and slowing down through the work zone for our workers’ safety as well as all drivers,” Lincoln stressed.  Changeable message boards, signs, flaggers and a pilot vehicle will be used for traffic control.  The resurfacing phase of work is scheduled to be completed by mid-July.
The work will be completed by Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc., who was awarded the contract earlier this year in the amount of $1,591,332.
Spring is here and highway work zones are beginning to pop up in Missouri.  As you approach a work zone, please don’t drive distracted.  All work zones are online at www.modot.org, and you can receive the latest news about road work in your area by signing up for e-updates.
