Multiple lane closures to impact I-70

Saturday, June 29, 2013 | 4:42 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Highway projects will require lanes on Interstate 70 in Columbia to be closed throughout next week.

According to a release from the Missouri Department of Transportation, drivers should be aware of the following closures:

  • Work on the diverging diamond interchange at I-70 and Route 740 (Stadium Boulevard) will require the eastbound Stadium on-ramp to I-70 to close at 8 p.m. Monday for several hours. Also, the eastbound I-70 driving lane and the on-ramp will be closed at that same location from 7 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday to allow construction crews to pave the ramp.
  • A project to improve I-70 over Hominy Creek will close the westbound passing lane of I-70 just west of Exit 131 (the Lake of the Woods/St. Charles Road overpass) from 7 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Wednesday . Motorists also need to watch for trucks entering and leaving the median.
  • Improvements to Route Z will close St. Charles Road at Route Z beginning Monday for the construction of a roundabout at that intersection.

Most highway construction and maintenance work in the mid-Missouri area will stop at noon Wednesday and will resume at 7 a.m. Friday to accommodate an increase in traffic due to the Fourth of July holiday.
