A
section of southbound I-29 near Mound City will close overnight.

The
Missouri Department of Transportation will close southbound I-29 just north of
Hopkins Creek near mile marker 59 beginning this evening, September 14th,
at 6pm. It is scheduled to be closed until six o’clock tomorrow morning.

MoDOT
says a crew from Capital Paving and Construction will be completing emergency
road repairs, making a concrete patch. The closure will occur within the work
zone of the Hopkins Creek and Route T bridge projects.

MoDOT
says during the closure southbound I-29 traffic will be directed onto U.S.
Route 59 (Exit 65) east onto U.S. Route 71, then south to reconnect with I-29.
Motorists will not be able to get onto southbound I-29 at Route K/CC (Exit 60)
and will need to use an alternate route.

The two bridge
projects include the replacement of the north and southbound I-29 bridges over
Hopkins Creek and the rehabilitation of the north and southbound bridges over
Route T. Both are part of Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges
program.
