JEFFERSON CITY - To keep customers informed of the latest progress involving the Lafayette Street Interchange Project in Jefferson City, the Missouri Department of Transportation has developed a multi-purpose webpage about the two-year, $20.3 million project.
The project includes building a new interchange at U.S. Route 50 and Lafayette Street; adding a lane in each direction on the Whitton Expressway from Monroe Street to Lafayette Street and from Lafayette to Clark Avenue; and rehabilitating, replacing or constructing six bridges along the corridor.
The Lafayette Street Interchange page can be found on MoDOT's Central District website at www.modot.org/central by clicking on the "Lafayette Street Interchange" banner at the top of the page. The website can also be found at this address: www.modot.org/central/major_projects/LafayetteInterchange.htm.
The website includes a general project overview, information about current construction work and future construction schedules, maps showing construction phases, as well as the ability to sign up for weekly e-mail updates about the project. This page will also serve as an information hub to give motorists advance notice of any major traffic impacts affecting their travel.
For more information about this project or for other transportation-related matters, call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636) or visit www.modot.org/central.
