Work On I-44 West Of Springfield Could Cause Slowdowns For Drivers


Motorists on Interstate 44 west of Springfield should watch out for road crews starting the week of March 2. 

The project will last several months.  It will include upgrading guardrails, lengthening interchange ramps and resurfacing the roadway, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation.

Work is scheduled to begin Monday night, March 2, and will result in nighttime lane and ramp closings.  The stretch of I-44 to be worked on is from east of James River Freeway (Route 360) to Chestnut Expressway (Route 266).

Contractor crews will be on the roadway between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.

The total project cost is $6.9 million.  Work is expected to be finished by mid August.
