State transportation crews will close the heavily-traveled southbound Highway 63 exit ramp to Highway 54 in Jefferson City after the morning rush hour today (Wednesday), as they begin rehabilitation work on the bridge over Oilwell road.
Columbia and Ashland-area commuters heading to Jefferson City should expect some delays for the next two weeks, due to detours.
The state Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will redirect motorists to eastbound Highway 54, where you’ll turn around on Summit drive in Holts Summit and drive back to Jefferson City.
This work is part of MoDOT’s $15-million project to provide a smoother driving surface for motorists between Columbia and Jefferson City. The agency says more than 10,000 vehicles drive on that ramp daily.
