COLUMBIA — The Interstate 70 and Stadium Boulevard diamond interchange that began in March is the first of its kind in mid-Missouri. The interchange is part of an improvement plan intended to alleviate traffic in the area.
The Missouri Department of Transportation plans to complete the interchange sometime this fall.
Mark Lunceford and Gaylan Barnes, laborers for Emery Sapp & Sons Inc., worked along the intersection of I-70 and Stadium Boulevard on Monday.
"It's bearable as long as you get fluids," Lunceford said. "Traffic gives us a little wind, too."
