Route 60/James River Freeway will close Tuesday night, August 20, 2019, between the Campbell Avenue and Kansas Expressway exits from 8 to 11 p.m..
The closure will allow utility crews to replace overhead power lines that were damaged by an oversized load.
All westbound drivers will exit on Campbell, all eastbound at Kansas. Detours will be placed routing all traffic along Republic Road for the duration of the closure.
MoDOT urges all Springfield area drivers to avoid that section of Route 60/James River Freeway tonight.
