All lanes of Route 54 and Highway 63 on the Missouri River Bridge in Jefferson City are now open. The Missouri Department of Transportation opened the eastbound side of the bridge Sunday afternoon and the westbound side of the bridge Friday. Construction on the bridge began May first. 

MoDOT Central District Construction and Materials Engineer Patty Lemongelli said residents have been inconvenienced enough and MoDOT is glad the bridge is reopened.

Kirksville City Council and the Adair County Commissioners are looking into developing new businesses along the new Highway 63.

A state representative is pushing the Missouri Department of Transportation to complete what he says is an unfinished project. A new stretch of US Highway 63 opening near Kirksville Wednesday includes a two-way stop.
