State transportation officials say demolition on the heavily-damaged Sorrels overpass over I-70 near Columbia will begin Friday night.

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) says Emery Sapp and Son contractors will start the demolition process at 9 pm tomorrow. You’re urged to find an alternate route. The demolition will require overnight lane closures on I-70 and rolling roadblocks all weekend.

The bridge, which was built in 1958, was struck by a truck in mid-October, causing significant damage. Crews have installed “wrap” under the overpass to prevent debris from falling onto vehicles below.
