I-35 Project in Cameron Beginning Next Month

A project to repair the U.S. Route 36 bridge over Interstate 35 in Cameron will begin early next month.

PCiRoads, Inc. working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, plans to begin making the repairs under the bridge on Monday, June 5.

The bridge, built in 1963, was struck recently by a high-profile vehicle driving underneath on I-35.

Crews will use a heat straightening technique to repair the damage to the bridge structure.

During the repair, the passing lane of northbound I-35 will be closed for the duration of the project.

Short-term closures of both northbound lanes may be necessary.

More information will come in advance of any full closures of I-35.

The driving lane on eastbound U.S. Route 36 also will be closed during the repair, with all traffic shifted into the passing lane.

A 12-foot width restriction will be in place.

The tentative completion date for this project is August.

All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
