MoDOT To Switch Traffic Lanes On 190 Bridge West of Chillicothe
Work on the eastbound lane of the Highway 190 bridge over the Thompson River, west of Chillicothe, is nearly complete and MoDOT will begin the work on the westbound lane next week.
Comanche Construction Inc., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, says traffic will switch on Monday, August 24th, allowing contractors to work on the other half of the bridge. Construction is staged to allow one lane of traffic over the bridge, with a 10-foot width restriction. Motorists are advised to pay attention, use caution, and follow all construction signs and traffic control.
Contractors plan to have the bridge open to two-way traffic by Thanksgiving.
