Districts Involved Kansas City Published On Fri, 08/12/2022 - 04:13 REMINDER/UPDATE: Ramp Closure in Jefferson City https://www.modot.org/node/26682 26682 at https://www.modot.org Fri, 12 Aug 2022 06:55:01 +0000 REMINDER/UPDATE: Ramp Closure in Jefferson City Visitor (not verified) Fri, 08/12/2022 - 07:55 Closure Scheduled to Begin Monday, August 15 Project Boone/Callaway U.S. Route 63 Resurfacing CALLAWAY COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) reminded motorists today of the planned closure of the southbound U.S. Route 63 connector ramp north of Jefferson City. Contractors will close the southbound Route 63 exit ramp to westbound U.S. Route 54 in order to safely complete rehabilitation work on the bridge over Oilwell Road. While the project was originally scheduled to begin on Tuesday, August 16, MoDOT says that due to potential weather that could be a factor on Tuesday, crews will begin a few hours earlier on Monday night, August 15, to complete some weather-dependent work. For approximately two weeks, motorists will be detoured around the closure via eastbound Route 54 to Summit Drive, where they will turn around and head westbound. Message boards are in place to inform drivers of the closure and detour. This work is part of a project to improve the driving surface and complete bridge rehabilitation work along Route 63 from Route B in Boone County to Route 54 north of Jefferson City. A contractor working for MoDOT is also upgrading guardrail and making improvements to several bridges. This work is weather permitting and could be delayed.
