Pedestrian Bridge Construction to Impact Interstate Traffic in Rolla

The City of Rolla, in partnership with Missouri S&T and the Missouri Department of Transportation, will be constructing a pedestrian bridge over Interstate 44 next week that will impact traffic.

The bridge will be constructed along Route E over I-44, near exit 185 in Rolla. In order for crews to construct the bridge, there will be overnight closures taking place on Tuesday, December 29 and Wednesday, December 30. Beginning Tuesday at 7 p.m., there will be single lane closures in each direction of I-44 and the Route E overpass will be closed to traffic. I-44 and the overpass are expected to re-open to traffic at 7 a.m.
