ST. LOUIS COUNTY – Significant traffic delays are occurring for motorists traveling on eastbound Interstate 44 at the Meramec River near Eureka as crews continue emergency bridge expansion joint repairs.
Crews expect to reopen the two right lanes of eastbound I-44 by Sunday morning, May 29. Then crews will switch and close the left lane of eastbound I-44 to complete expansion joint repairs. At that time, only the two right lanes of eastbound I-44 will be open.  The left lane closure is expected to remain in place until Wednesday, June 1 and could impact the morning commute.
MoDOT is urging motorists to consider alternate routes for eastbound I-44 as they approach this emergency work zone. Eastbound I-44 traffic can choose to exit at Gray Summit and continue east on Route 100. Drivers can also choose to exit at Route 109 in Eureka and then proceed on Route 109 to Route 100. Other bypass options include Route 30 and Route 21.
Drivers can also check the MoDOT Traveler Information Map before heading out at: http://traveler.modot.org/map/ on the web or via our phone app.

Online Community Briefing: Share Your Thoughts!

SIKESTON—The Missouri Department of Transportation plans to improve Route 21/72 in Iron County. Improvements will extend from Route E near Arcadia, Missouri to Route 49 near Glover, Missouri.
Five curves will be improved along the project limits.

Mark Twain Lake Route U Boat Ramp in Monroe County to Close up to 60 Days

Thu, 05/26/2022 – 11:45

HANNIBAL – Weather permitting, immediately following Memorial Day weekend, Tuesday, May 31 marks the start of the 60-day closure of the Route U Mark Twain Lake boat ramp in Monroe County, located one-half mile from Missouri Route 107, just west of Florida.
Work continues to progress on the project, including roadway embankment slide repairs and multiple culvert replacements, at this location. Mark Twain Lake will be inaccessible from Route U as the road will be closed from MO 107 extending approximately one mile west.  While this closure is in place, lake access is available nearby, approximately 1.25 miles north, on MO 107.  
A signed detour has been in place since last July when a section of the road collapsed due to unstable soil conditions.  The detour will remain in place while work is being completed.   Schedule changes could occur due to weather or material availability.
The $822,543 contract was awarded to Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc., for the grading, pavement and culvert replacement project earlier this year. 
Be in the know before you go! All work zones are online at www.modot.org/northeast, and you can receive the latest news about road work in your area by signing up for e-updates, receiving emails or text messages about road work that’s happening on the roads, projects or counties you want!

2022 Listing of Bridges that Qualify for Federal Funding

2022 Eligible Bridge List

MoDOT has compiled the annual listings of nonstate bridges that qualify for federal funding.  These listings can be found on our website at the link provided below.  The 2022 listing is the second one that is based on eligibility criteria being Poor Condition using NBI data. 

2022 Bridge Eligibility Listing – Poor Condition | Missouri Department of Transportation (modot.org)This information was compiled from a query of the March 2022 submittal of National Bridge Inventory (NBI) data to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).  The NBI data was updated before the submittal with bridge inspection information from the most recent inspection cycle.  This updated data was provided to us from the bridge inspectors in central office as well as the districts. It is assumed that replacement is the best option for a structure that is classified as Poor Condition.  This doesn’t preclude a county from doing a major rehabilitation on a structure instead of replacing it.  It will be up to the engineer of record for the county to determine the best solution at each structure site and ensure that it meets the overall goals of the program. 

MoDOT is currently updating their process to distribute local bridge funds.  We anticipate announcing this new process in the very near future.  Once the process is released, a call for projects will be issued.  We recommend that local agencies review their eligible bridges on the poor listing and start working with your region’s planning partners to prioritize your bridges needs that will be submitted once the call for projects it issued.

Stay Alert for the Summer

Memorial Day marks the start of the 100 deadliest days on the roads

JEFFERSON CITY – This weekend marks the start of a busy travel season and a historically deadly time on the nation’s roadways. And with construction season in full swing, the Missouri Department of Transportation is urging drivers to stay alert this summer.
During last year’s “100 Deadliest Days of Summer,” which spans the summer travel season between Memorial Day and Labor Day, 333 people were killed in Missouri traffic crashes. Distracted driving, excessive speed and following too closely were three of the main causes of crashes, particularly in and around work zones.
“With more places to be, more people on the roads and more construction work across the state, it’s crucial to stay alert behind the wheel,” said Becky Allmeroth, MoDOT’s chief safety and operations officer. “Whether you’re sharing the road with motorcyclists, driving around city streets with pedestrians in the area, or traveling through a work zone, slowing down and paying attention can save lives, including your own.”
With the heavy holiday weekend traffic, MoDOT will suspend work zones with routine lane closures beginning at noon on Friday, May 27, through 6 a.m. on Tuesday, May 31, but major work zones with permanent lane closures will remain in place. Drivers are reminded to pay attention to warning signs, obey the speed limit and put their phones down.
Some of the major work zones with permanent lane closures in place over the holiday weekend include I-35 in Kansas City, where all northbound lanes from 12th Street (Exit 2W) through the I-70 interchange will be closed for bridge reconstruction. In St. Louis, the eastbound lanes of I-255 over the Mississippi River are closed, and all traffic shares the westbound bridge with two lanes in each direction. Additionally, a multi-year project is underway from mile marker 22-33 on I-270 in northern St. Louis County. Motorists can expect construction on the route and its eight interchanges. In Pulaski County, one eastbound and westbound lane of I-44 will be closed at mile marker 166.8 (Trophy Lane) over the weekend for bridge rehabilitation work.
MoDOT advises motorists to plan ahead by using the Traveler Information Map at traveler.modot.org, which provides the latest road conditions, including closures, work zones and incidents. A mobile map app is also available for smartphone users, or motorists can call MoDOT’s 24/7 customer service toll free at 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).
MoDOT continues to work toward a goal of zero roadway fatalities and urges all who travel in and around the Show-Me State this summer to buckle up, put the cellphone down, slow down and never drive while impaired. For more information on Missouri’s strategic highway safety plan, Show-Me Zero, and how everyone can participate, visit savemolives.com.

SIKESTON—Visitors and residents will be out in full force along Route 25 Memorial Day weekend in search of bargains at the 100-Mile Yard Sale, but MoDOT wants you to remember the greatest savings of the event could be a life.
“It’s a fun weekend that people look forward to each year,” says Traffic Engineer Craig Compas, “but we want people to remember that there’s more traffic and more congestion along Route 25 this weekend than any other and drivers need to keep that in mind.”
MoDOT will do its part to bring the safety message to the forefront.  Message boards will be in place along the route to alert drivers of the unusual traffic patterns and promote safe driving.
“We really want drivers to be alert—to be aware of their surroundings, to be aware of sudden stops and to look for pedestrian traffic,” Compas says.  “While we want everyone to enjoy themselves, we ask that people also be as safe as possible.”
For more information, contact Compas at (573) 472-5310 or call MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).

Merge Change Helps Improve Traffic Flow

SIKESTON—The Missouri Department of Transportation plans to update the signage and striping on Route 63 at First Street in Houston, Missouri. Currently, drivers are asked to “merge left” in this location. The updated signage will indicate that drivers should “merge right.”
“This update should help provide more separation for school and downtown traffic versus through traffic,” said Senior Traffic Studies Specialist Michael Wake. “Currently, both merge into the left lane. Local traffic tends to slow down to turn onto a city street, while through traffic is attempting to speed up.”
Wake explained this change will keep local traffic in the left lane and will provide the right lane for through traffic that is traveling out of town.
“Overall, the goal is to minimize conflicts and improve traffic flow in this location,” he said.
To make this change, MoDOT crews will remove part of the current striping and change the signage to read “merge right.” The new sign will feature flags to help alert drivers to the change.
This update will be completed Monday, May 23, weather permitting. Motorists are encouraged to use caution while traveling in the area as work is underway.
For more information, please contact Wake at (417) 469-6265, District Traffic Engineer Craig Compas at (573) 472-5310 or MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).

Route 54/Route 19/Route J Intersection Improvement Project Summer of 2022

HANNIBAL – By late fall, drivers using U.S. Route 54 in Audrain County can look forward to a new roundabout at the intersection of U.S. 54/MO 19/Route J, just north of Laddonia.  The Missouri Department of Transportation and its contractor will begin construction on the roundabout in the next few weeks.  “The new roundabout will improve safety at this intersection and be similar to the one at Scott’s Corner, approximately 7 miles south of the project,” said Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Jeff Kroner. 
The public informational meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 1, from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at City Hall in Laddonia, MO located at 301 East 1st Street.  This will be an open-house style meeting. Individuals are welcome to stop by anytime during the meeting to visit with MoDOT representatives about the project.  “There will be several displays showcasing the project detail,” said Kroner.  “We encourage individuals to stop by, as well as, sign up for email and text alerts to stay up-to-date on the project,” he added.  All information shown at the public meeting will be available online the day of the meeting at https://www.modot.org/roundabouts-us-route-54.
The construction will be done under traffic, with the exception of a two-week closure of U.S. 54 scheduled following the Labor Day holiday. During this closure, a detour will be in place directing traffic over MO 154 to MO 19.  In addition, the access to Route J and the radius from northbound U.S. 54 to eastbound U.S. 54 will be closed for the duration of the project.  “We understand closures and the temporary detour will be inconvenient, yet these are necessary for the construction of intersection improvements and to provide safety for drivers and construction workers as well,” explained Kroner.
Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. was awarded the contract by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission earlier this year for $4,117,988 with a completion date of December 1, 2022.
MoDOT will alert the public about the project through signs, news releases and social media.  For more information, call MoDOT at 888-ASK-MODOT (275-6636) or visit www.modot.org to receive the latest statewide news and text alerts, signup for e-updates.
