Road work in Boone County set for first week in January

COLUMBIA — The Missouri Department of Transportation and the Columbia Public Works Department have three scheduled construction projects that will affect drivers next week.

The following closings, detours and construction projects will take place during daylight and overnight hours, weather permitting: 

  • Beginning at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Short Street will be closed from Broadway to Walnut Street for construction relating to the new city garage and hotel development. Crews will be removing bricks from Short Street that will be used on other historic streets in the city. The street will remain closed until 2013. Traffic on Broadway and Walnut Street will not be affected.
  • Route H will remain closed at U.S. 63 until the new diamond interchange is open to traffic, scheduled for late 2012. There is a detour to Hardwick Lane, near the U.S. 63 roadside park.
  • Because of traffic congestion around the Columbia Mall area during the holidays, adjustments were made to the traffic signals and road striping to improve safety and traffic flow near Stadium Boulevard and Interstate 70 South Outer Roadway. These will be removed next week.

MoDOT and the Public Works Department remind drivers to use extreme caution when near a construction site, drive slow and keep an eye out for posted construction signs.
