Hwy 179 work delayed due to weather

Work on the Industrial Drive-Hwy 179 intersection has been pushed back a week.

Rainy weather has once again pushed back work to reconfigure the driving lanes at the intersection of Highway 179 and Industrial Drive in Jefferson City.

The Missouri Department of Transportation plans to re-stripe the intersection to turn the inside southbound lane into be a dedicated, two-way center turn lane between the stoplight and Merchants Drive.

Crews will try again on Tuesday, April 1st.

The work will start at 9am, and should be done by 3pm. Crews will close single lanes during that time.

This is the second delay for the project. Cold weather Monday created the first.

This is the existing intersection and this is the plan for the new intersection.
