If you’re headed west of the Lake Area near Truman Lake, there’s a road closure that’ll be forcing a detour starting August 2.
MoDOT says all lanes of U-S Route 65 under Highway 83 will be closed in both directions as crews get set to pour concrete on the 83 bridge and the surface of 65.
Signs will be posted that’ll direct you to the detour up and over the northbound and southbound ramps of Highway 83.
MoDOT does recommend you find an alternate route while the work continues.
Weather permitting, officials say the concrete pouring will continue off and on through August 4.
The entire project will be finished in mid-September.
