Interstate 70 was closed Tuesday from Exit 155 to 161 for construction on a new bridge on Route D in Callaway County over the interstate. The bridge is one of 250 bridges in the state of Missouri to be repaired or replaced as part of the "Focus on Bridges" program.

Motorists traveling through Williamsburg used alternate routes, including Route YY and Route D to bypass the construction work. Signs and road crews guided motorists through the detour route. The closure started at 7 p.m. Tuesday and ended Wednesday morning.
