Emergency Roadway Repairs Announced For I-29

The Missouri Department of Transportation has announced emergency roadway repairs will once again close a section of southbound Interstate 29 in Andrew County Thursday evening. After attempts to temporarily repair the roadway, contractors from Capital Paving and Construction, LLC., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, will close I-29 southbound, just north of Hopkins Creek (near mile marker 59), from 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1, to 6 a.m. Friday, Oct. 2, in order to complete a concrete patch.

Due to expected low temperatures overnight, the closure may be extended on Friday morning in order to ensure the concrete has cured completely. The closure will occur within the work zone of the Hopkins Creek and Route T bridge projects where traffic is being directed head-to-head in the northbound lanes.

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