JEFFERSON CITY – Missouri Department of Transportation crews will be making improvements to the U.S. Route 54 Missouri River bridge in Jefferson City next week.

Starting Tuesday, November 12, crews will close down the eastbound passing lane from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. each day in order to make routine improvements to the bridge. Work is expected to be complete by Friday, November 15. All work is weather permitting and could be delayed, in which case work will continue the following week.

No significant traffic delays are expected, but are possible. MoDOT advises motorists to slow down, avoid distractions and obey all posted traffic signs through the work zones.

Any changes in the schedule for this project will be communicated through the MoDOT Traveler Information Map, social media and local news.
