MAP: A new way to turn

September 20, 2011 | 12:01 a.m. CDT
The construction project on U.S. 63 will add more than a new interchange at Route H near Columbia Regional Airport. The Missouri Department of Transportation is changing the way drivers will cross U.S. 63. Current crossovers at intersections will be removed and replaced with “J-turns.” The median on U.S. 63 will be narrowed, allowing MoDOT to shift U.S. 63’s southbound lanes into the existing median and build a new outer road in their place.
