Missouri 150 will be closed today at U.S. 71

Highway crews will close Missouri 150 underneath U.S. 71 today from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. so they can remove a concrete bridge. They also will close a lane of southbound U.S. 71 to make room for the work.

During today's closure, westbound Route 150 traffic will detour north on the outer road to 140th Street, east over the U.S. 71 bridge at 140th then south on the outer road back to Highway 150.

Eastbound Highway 150 traffic will detour south on Route D/Holmes Road to Route 58, then east on Route 58 to U.S. 71, then north on Route 71 back to Missouri 150.

Highway officials say they will open the highway up early if possible.
