Sunday, May 22, 2011

SIKESTON, Mo. -- Work to replace the Route H overpass over Interstate 55 south of Blodgett, Mo., is scheduled to begin June 18, weather permitting. The project has been delayed by material availability. As construction is underway, Route H will remain closed from Route HH to Highway 77 in Scott County. Completion is anticipated in August. During demolition of the overpass, I-55 traffic will be detoured for one 24-hour period. This detour will be from 9 p.m. June 18 to 9 p.m. June 19. Occasional lane reductions on the interstate may be necessary as work progresses. Signs and warning devices will be in place. For more information, contact regional field engineer Andy Meyer at 573-472-5296, assistant resident engineer David Wyman at 573-840-9781 or 888-275-6636, or visit
