Conley Road extension to open soon in Columbia
The Missouri Department of Transportation announced it expects a road construction project in Columbia to wrap up soon.
MODOT said the Conley Road extension to the Business Loop will open by early July, providing an easy way to travel from Broadway to the Business Loop without having to deal with the traffic jams at the I-70/Hwy 63 exchange. The road also has a wide pedway for pedestrians and cyclists.
MODOT said it expects to close the eastbound on-ramp to I-70 at the far east end of the Business Loop. MODOT explained that on-ramp averaged more than 6 car crashes a year. The department said drivers will still be able to get on and off I-70 via Rangeline.
