New traffic pattern coming to I-44 east of Marshfield


Eastbound I-44 traffic will be split near mile marker 105.4 east of Marshfield while crews replace bridges over the Niangua River. Work will begin the week of May 8 and will remain in this pattern until the completion of the project, sometime in late November.

This work is part of a three-year project to improve 25 bridges within 15 miles of I-44 across the Southwest District. Of the 25 bridges in the project, known as the I-44 Corridor Bridge Bundle, seven are mainline I-44 bridges, five are I-44 overpass bridges and the remaining bridges are on adjacent routes over various features. 16 bridges will be replaced and nine bridges will receive major rehabilitation work.
