Major construction projects will hamper traffic on two Mid-Missouri highways over the next few weeks: • Ameren Missouri will temporarily close Business Route 54 on Bagnell Dam in Miller County on July 19, 20 and 21 to replace safety equipment. The road will be closed to traffic between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on those three days. • Repairs to the Lamine River bridges west of Boonville will begin to significantly affect Interstate 70 traffic started this week. Westbound traffic will narrow to one lane late tonight. Eastbound traffic will be reduced to one lane by Tuesday morning, and all vehicles will share a bridge beginning Wednesday, July 13. A single lane will run in each direction for up to 45 days. The bridge closures are expected to cause significant travel delays, especially on peak travel days, the biggest of which are Thursdays and Fridays.
