MODOT to temporarily close I-44 and Range Line Road ramps

Updated:

Updated September 19, 2012:  The Missouri Department of Transportation plans on closing two heavily used I-44 ramps in Joplin.

MODOT has been working on an interchange at I-44 and Range Line Road in Joplin.

Wednesday and Thursday's access to ramps will be limited.

On Wednesday, MODOT plans on shutting down the eastbound ramp from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

On Thursday, MODOT plans on shutting down the westbound ramp, again from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

This will allow crews to pave the temporary ramps.

Posted September 12, 2012:  Interstate 44 traffic is being shifted away from where crews are rebuilding the I-44 bridge over Range Line Road in south Joplin.

The westbound ramp from Range Line to I-44 is shortened, meaning drivers have a shorter distance to get up to speed from the ramp to meet interstate traffic.

Crews have put up extra signs and rumble strips to alert drivers of the shortened ramp.

Officials say it will be shortened for about two or three weeks but will remain narrow until the project is completed.
