BOONE COUNTY – Information is now available regarding the rehabilitation the Sorrels Overpass bridge over Interstate 70 west of Columbia, and the Missouri Department of Transportation is inviting nearby residents and travelers to share their thoughts.
The 63-year-old bridge has reached the point where rehabilitation is necessary to extend the life and usability of the bridge by up to 30 years.
The overpass will be closed during the work, and occasional lane closures are likely in both directions of I-70. MoDOT says specific lane closure information will be announced through signs, media releases and social media when a timeline for the project has been established.
This project is expected to begin and be completed in 2022.
Motorists and area residents can ask questions or provide feedback on this project using the digital comment form at modot.org/sorrelsoverpass. The online public comment period is open through May 21.
