>Quick MoDOT/IDOT updates

Posted: 2011/06/10 in construction, IDOT, MoDOT

>Both IDOT and MoDOT made some announcements today, so lets get to the details quickly as computer time is very limited:

  • MoDOT started the switch to the variable advisory speeds today.
  • IDOT got more patching work coming up on the canal bridge on the eastbound lanes, since their press release link won’t work correctly, all that will be mentioned is that it will happen next week during off-peak times.

If anyone hasn’t noticed in recent weeks, the driving surface of the canal bridge is pretty much a piece of crap. Plan on using alternate routes to get around this mess, as IDOT is starting to adopt the MoDOT dirty bag of tricks.

Speaking of those tricks, MoDOT got the Poplar St. Bridge and some of the Highway 40 approaches all but shut down this weekend, so expect a higher than normal amount of traffic on the canal and river bridge this weekend.
