Highway 50 shutting down again Monday

Placing girders for a new overpass will require full intermittent closures of Highway 50/63 near the Chestnut Street bridge Mondaynight in Jefferson City. Each closure should last about 15 minutes. Law enforcement officers will be on site to provide advance warning for drivers.

In addition, traffic will be reduced to one lane on Highway 50/63 near the overpass. One eastbound and westbound lane will be closed in the work zone from 7 p.m. Monday, April 13, until 6 a.m. Tuesday, April 14.

In preparation for the work, the Highway 50/63 westbound on-ramp at Clark Avenue will be closed beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, in order to store the girders. Once work is complete, the ramp will be reopened.

The work is taking place as part of the Lafayette Street Interchange project, a two-year, $20-million project to improve safety and traffic flow along the Highway 50/63 corridor. The project includes building a new interchange at Lafayette Street, adding a lane in each direction between Monroe Street and Clark Avenue, and improving six overpasses in the area.
