An emergency roadway repair will close a section of southbound Interstate 29 in Andrew County overnight this week.
Contractors from Capital Paving and Construction, LLC., working with Mo-Dot, plan to close I-29 to northbound traffic at the U.S. Route 71 and I-229 interchange from 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 2, through 6 a.m. Thursday, June 3, to complete a concrete roadway patch.
The closure will occur within the work zone of the Route T bridge project where traffic is being directed head-to-head in the southbound lanes.
During the closure, northbound traffic will be directed onto U.S. Route 71 (Exit 56A), to U.S. Route 59 until they reconnect with I-29 (Exit 65). Motorists will not be able to access northbound I-29 from the northbound I-229 or southbound U.S. Route 71 ramps.
