The work on the Champ Clark Bridge scheduled for today was postponed due to the weather. Weather permitting, Tuesday October 2, 2012 MoDOT crews will close the Champ Clark Bridge at Louisiana to perform sealing operations. Because of the narrow width of the bridge, closing the bridge is the best way to secure the safety of the workers and the traveling public. The closure will be in effect beginning at 9:00 a.m. with the work taking up to two hours. The process involves spreading oil on both lanes and immediately covering with cinders.

Flaggers will be in place for controlling traffic as well as signs at various locations along the roadway to alert motorists of the work. Please use extra caution when traveling through the work zone area after the work is complete, as there will be oil and loose rock chips on the bridge.

An annual inspection was recently performed on the bridge with no significant concerns found. The sealing operation scheduled is for routine maintenance, and not a result of any concerns with the bridge.

All roadwork is posted on the traveler information map. Those traveling and the commuting public are encouraged to check the online map at www.modot.org daily for new work zones. MoDOT also offers e-update messages sent directly to your email when roadwork is scheduled. Sign up online or call MoDOT’s customer service center at 1-888-275-6636.
