Scheduled Interstate 29 Closure Delayed

A scheduled closure of Interstate 29 is now postponed due to weather.

The Missouri Department of Transportation says the planned closure of I-29, for the removal of the bridge over the intersection on Route 116 south of Faucett, has been postponed until next weekend due to weather.

Route 116 closed to all traffic Thursday for a bridge replacement project and is expected to last through May.

For the safety of crew members and motorists during the demolition of the old bridge, I-29 will be closed in both directions between Dearborn and Faucett for 24 hours on January 31 and February 1.

The current, planned signed detour route is along Routes H/Z, 371 and DD.

Motorists must follow the signed detour or find an alternate route.

During the bridge replacement project, there may be additional single-lane closures on I-29 under the bridge, temporary closures to outer roads, and other traffic impacts.

Drivers are urged to stay alert and pay attention to all roadway signing and barricades.

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