Removal of Bridges to Close Whitton Expressway Weekend of Feb. 6
Drivers planning to travel through Jefferson City on the Rex Whitton Expressway portion of U.S. Route 50 will have to make alternate plans on the weekend of Feb. 6 to allow for the removal of two bridges.
The work is taking place as part of the Lafayette Street Interchange project, a two-year, $20.3-million project to improve safety and traffic flow along Route 50.
Route 50 (Whitton Expressway) West in Jefferson City will be closed from Clark Avenue to Monroe Street and Route 50 East will be closed from Madison Street to Clark Avenue to remove the Jackson Street and Chestnut Street bridges, which carry vehicles over the expressway. The Route 50 closure will take place from 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 6 until 6 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 9. (MORE)
