Motorists heading south from Columbia or north from Jefferson City will see an open road as crews have completed work on two additional bridges on U.S. Route 63.
Contractors working for the Missouri Department of Transportation completed their work on the northbound bridge over Turkey Creek and the southbound bridge over Gans Creek on Monday. These bridges have been under construction with one lane closed to traffic since October.
This work was part of a larger project to rehabilitate and extend the life of seven bridges in Boone and Callaway Counties along Route 63. Six of the bridge projects are now complete, and the last of these bridge rehabilitation locations, the southbound bridge over Cedar Creek, is scheduled to begin in early spring next year.
