The Missouri Department of Transportation's continuing resurfacing and bridge improvement work on U.S. 54 in Jefferson City will limit westbound traffic to one lane beginning Monday.
The third stage of the ongoing project will rehabilitate the bridges over Stadium Boulevard and Broadway Street and will repair the westbound on-ramp from Madison Street, which will be closed during the work.
The project requires westbound U.S. 54 to be reduced to one lane from north of Broadway to south of Stadium, 24 hours a day.
The work is tentatively scheduled to take four weeks and be completed by Aug. 6.
After the westbound bridge work is complete, the project's fourth stage will be pavement resurfacing, causing nightly lane closures — from 7 p.m.-6 a.m. — on U.S. 54 and the adjacent ramps.
The work on eastbound U.S. 54 and on the ramp bridge over U.S. 50, which carries traffic from eastbound U.S. 50 to northbound U.S. 54/63, has been completed.
All of the work is scheduled to be finished by Nov. 1.
Motorists should expect congestion on U.S. 54 in and near active work zones — especially during peak travel times — and should allow for extra time to reach their destinations.
Travelers also should plan for alternate routes when on- and off-ramps are closed as part of the project.
When completed, the project will have repaired the U.S 54 pavement, shoulders and six bridges, and upgraded the guardrails, from the Missouri River Bridge to just south of the Stadium Boulevard interchange.
