COLUMBIA — Ongoing bridge repair maintenance on U.S. 63 could cause traffic delays during MU's commencement weekend.

Northbound traffic on U.S. 63 between the Grindstone Parkway and Stadium Boulevard exits will continue to be narrowed to one lane, according to information about the project on the Missouri Department of Transportation website. 

MoDOT officials advise visitors traveling north on U.S. 63 to Columbia to take the Grindstone exit to get to MU's campus, or allow extra travel time, according to an MU news release. 

The MoDOT traveler information map will be updated with information on traffic delays over the weekend, and visitors can use the MU campus map to plan alternate routes to campus.

Resurfacing and repair work on the bridge over Grindstone Creek began May 1, and work on the northbound bridge over Stadium Boulevard began May 5, according to a MoDOT news releaseThe lane will reopen May 23 when road maintenance on both bridges is completed, according to MoDOT's website. 

The repairs are part of a rehabilitation project on several bridges in mid-Missouri. The repairs began in April, and work on all of the bridges is expected to be completed by November.
