179 to close when work begins around July

The Missouri Department of Transportation has partnered with the City of Jefferson and Cole County to construct a new interchange on Route 179 in Cole County which will provide access to a new St. Mary's Health Center nearby.

Timelines and details about the construction of a new Missouri 179 interchange near the site of a new St. Mary's Health Center were revealed at a public meeting Tuesday night.

More than 50 people came to the Eagles Club to look at maps and drawings as well as ask questions of both MoDOT and St. Mary's officials.

The big news of the night was that after work starts, around July 1, the construction of the new interchange will require closing the highway between Edgewood Drive and Route C for about 90 days.
