ASHLAND, Mo. (AP) — One lane of a heavily traveled highway between Jefferson City and Columbia is closed by a rock slide, and officials predict occasional delays for several weeks.
The Missouri Department of Transportation announced the closing of one northbound lane of U.S. 63 on Friday afternoon.
The slide was reported late Thursday along a rock bluff south of Ashland, near the Boone-Callaway county line. MoDOT plans to solicit bids Monday on a contract to stabilize the bluff, with work possibly starting Tuesday.
The northbound lane is expected to remain closed for about 10 days. MoDOT says U.S. 63 will be closed periodically throughout the project, which is expected to be finished in early May.
