Because of winter weather last week, the Missouri Department of Transportation pushed two pavement improvement projects to this week.

The affected locations are part of Interstate 70 in Boone County and the west entrance to Smith Street at the intersection of College Avenue, according to MoDOT news releases.

A road closure occurred at the west entrance to Smith Street on Monday morning, with a planned reopening of next Monday. All properties along Smith Street will still be accessible to traffic through other routes, according to MoDOT.

Overnight repairs on westbound I-70 will require single-lane closures at various locations between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Locations in Boone and Cooper counties are expected to be completed by Friday.

The ramp from Providence Road to westbound I-70 in Columbia will be closed Monday evening.

MoDOT will update all future dates and locations for the projects through message boards, social media and the MoDOT Traveler Information Map.

Supervising editor is Fred Anklam.
