HANNIBAL, Mo. (KMIZ)

On Tuesday morning, the Missouri Department of Transportation’s contractor will close a lane in each direction on Interstate 70 at High Hill, mile marker 180, to begin work on the overpass that was hit by an 18-wheeler on June 23.

Crews will work with begin daily morning lane closures at 6 a.m. for the next two weeks to complete the repairs.

The lanes on I-70 are restricted to 10 feet wide. All ramps at Route F/High Hill interchange are open, but the overpass/bridge remains closed to traffic.

Dates may extend due to weather delays:

  • Tuesday, July 5, one lane closed in each direction on I-70 from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m.
  • Wednesday, July 6 through Saturday, July 9, one lane closed eastbound on I-70
  • from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily
  • Monday, July 11 through Wednesday, July 13, one lane closed eastbound on I-70
  • from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily

Crews will be working in the median each day after both lanes of I-70 reopen at 11 a.m. Motorists are advised to slow down and watch for construction work in the area. Due the volume of traffic on I-70, drivers are encouraged to consider alternate routes during the morning hours when one lane is closed.

Route F will reopen after the new column/concrete has time to strengthen, probably within 5 days.
