Northbound Route 65 has been reopened six days ahead of schedule.
MoDOT announced the reopening of Route 65, including the Route 60/65 interchange, as of 11:30 Saturday September 14.
The highway was scheduled to be closed from James River Freeway to Sunshine Street until November 20.
Favorable weather conditions allowed the construction crews to complete the replacement of the concrete pavement ahead of schedule.
While the road is officially open, there will be periodic lane closures over the next few weeks for crews to smoothen the roadway. Those closures will take place in the evenings between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m..
