Rehabilitation of the U.S. 63 bridge at Bonne Femme Creek will disrupt traffic starting at 8 a.m. next Wednesday. 

While the work takes place, all traffic will be reduced to a single lane. Construction is expected to be completed in August.

Construction on the northbound bridge, located just south of Columbia, will extend the bridge's life by 20 to 25 years.  

Message boards will be placed in the area to notify drivers of the lane closure. 

The work is part of a larger project to improve seven bridges in Boone and Callaway counties along U.S. 63, including bridges over Grindstone Parkway, Gans Creek and Turkey Creek. The $3.9 million project is scheduled to be completed by summer 2020.  

The Missouri Department of Transportation said in a Wednesday news release that it appreciates the patience of motorists as this work takes place.
