SIKESTON - The Missouri Department of Transportation will reduce Route AB in northern Cape Girardeau and southern Scott counties to one lane near the Interstate 55 interchange from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. today through Saturday. The purpose of the change is for the crew to widen the roadway.
The work is part of the project to replace the Diversion Channel Bridge and make additional improvements to the I-55/Route AB interchange. Pavement construction will be ongoing this week to widen Route AB to three lanes and add shoulders from just west of the interchange to just east of the interchange.
Traffic will be controlled by flagmen to keep it moving. MoDOT encourages motorists to use extreme caution when traveling near the work zone.
