HAMILTON, Mo. – A portion of Highway 36 will see nighttime closures for the next two weeks.

The Missouri Department of Transportation says closure of the westbound lanes of U.S. Route 36 in Hamilton will occur for continued repairs to a bridge in Caldwell County which was struck by a vehicle in 2019.

Crews from Comanche Construction, Inc., working with MoDOT, plan to close the westbound lanes of U.S. Route 36 at Route 13 in Hamilton from 7 p.m. Friday through 7 a.m. Saturday and from 7 p.m. Saturday through 7 a.m. Sunday, both weekends: May 29-31 and June 5-7.

During the closures, westbound traffic will be rerouted up and over the ramps at Route 13. Flaggers will guide all traffic for westbound U.S. Route 36 and Route 13 through the interchange.

Route 13 will remain narrowed for the remainder of the project. During weekday daylight hours, westbound U.S. Route 36 will be reduced to one lane under the bridge. Work is scheduled to continue through July.

All work is weather-permitting and subject to change.
